Grand Central Terminal on holidays


"The Grand Central Terminal is not only a station," The New York Times declared in 1913, one hundred year ago, "it is a monument, a civic center, or, if one will, a city”. The station looks beautiful during the day and at night, and there's quite a lot to do inside. 
There's something about this iconic building that draws people from all over the world.  Look at my posts: "Grand Central Terminal Post 1" and  "Grand Central Terminal Post 2".

There is a  Grand Central Market - year-round indoors version of a farmer’s market.   It is open   seven days a week (Mon. - Fri from 7 am - 9 pm; Sat. from 10 am – 7 pm; Sun. 11 am – 6 pm). It is mostly  pit stop for commuters and  a place where you can  grab prepared foods on the go.  

There are three more reasons  to visit Central Terminal on the  Holiday  Season 2013:
1. In addition  to the  food market   Grand Central Terminal’s 14th annual Holiday  Fair with more than 70 vendors started several days go.  The stands in the Vanderbilt Hall  offer  a wonderful array of holiday gifts- jewelry and accessories for men and women, bath and body items, home goods, collectible toys.

2. In partnership with MTA Metro-North Railroad and Grand Central, Toshiba has created a state-of-the-art light show that transforms the 118 separate window panes into individual "pixels" of light. A  winter holiday-themed show  will run through December 26.

3. The New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex and Store at Grand Central Terminal has its 12th  annual Holiday Train Show with the small  trains   traveling through a two-level, 34-foot-long  miniature New York City and countryside scene.
