Grand Central Terminal is one of the largest railway stations in the world, with 44 platforms and 67 tracks

The terminal opened in 1913 and was designed by architects Reed and Stern, who incorporated elements of Beaux-Arts and neoclassical architecture

Grand Central Terminal replaced the previous Grand Central Station, which was built in 1871 and was located further downtown

The terminal's main concourse features a stunning astronomical ceiling mural, which was created by artist Paul César Helleu and depicts the signs of the zodiac

During World War II, Grand Central Terminal was a major transportation hub for soldiers and supplies, with up to 3,000 trains passing through the station daily

The terminal has been featured in many films and television shows, including "North by Northwest," "Gossip Girl," and "Mad Men."

In the 1960s, plans were made to demolish Grand Central Terminal and replace it with an office building

Grand Central Terminal underwent a major restoration in the 1990s, which included cleaning and repairing the ceiling mural, restoring the exterior façade

The terminal is a major transportation hub for commuters and visitors alike, with connections to multiple subway lines and regional rail services
