Ever since I came as a tourist to New York, Grand Central Terminal made the impression on me. The combination of the history of trains being the backbone in the dicovery of the USA, combined with the memory of the men who made New York City to the city it is today, make it my favorite symbol of the big apple.
Since I became a tourguide for Be NY, I had the chance to bring so many tourists to this incredible location.
When mister Vanderbilt had obtained the quasi monopoly of the trains, he needed a place to centralise his new toys. Boys and toys, the rich version… And he ordered Grand Central Terminal to be built in the center of Manhattan.
