10 Reasons Grand Central Terminal Is One of the Coolest Places in NYC Image via virtualtourist.com

The Shopping

Grand Central's well known for its beautiful concourse and (obviously) the transportation, that its market might get pushed to the wayside. But it'd be a mistake to neglect the 68 shops which offer any item or service that you might need, and more than a few you'd want. It's rather easy to get an expert trim and shave at the Art of Shaving, then head over to Beer Table Pantry to pick up one of their 100 bottled beers, and afterwards swing by Junior's to pick up a cheesecake to bring home. Then there's the actual market itself, usually pretty busy, and with stalls from Li-Lac Chocolates—Manhattan's oldest chocolate house—hundreds of cheeses from Murray's Cheese, vendors of fresh seafood, spices and more. Throw in an Apple Store that overlooks the entire station, and you've got one of America's coolest shopping centers that isn't one.
