Have you ever visited a place so glorious that you wanted to stay in its presence and bask in its glory forever? That was my exact sentiments when I stepped into Grand Central Terminal in December. I fell head over heels in love… with a historic building. The architecture, the history, the shops, the restaurants, the everything. It was like being transported back in time. I have decided that if I ever lost my home due to a series of unfortunate events and needed a new place to live, I would save enough money for a plane ticket to LaGuardia and excitedly make my way to my new address at 89 E. 42nd St New York, New York. The Grand Central Terminal has been officially dubbed “my New York City Happy Place”.
The terminal is more than just a beautiful historical landmark. It is also home to casual dining restaurants like the Shake Shack, Eata Pita, and the Chirping Chicken and fine dining establishments such as Cipriani Dolci and Michael Jordan’s the Steak House NYC. My favorite feature at the Grand Central Station was the Magnolia Bakery. If you are a fan of Sex & the City, you may be familiar with the name. If not just note, the cupcakes there are aaah-ma-zing! I had the gingerbread cupcake and the red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing (don’t judge me) and they were delicious. My husband had their hummingbird cake and raved about how awesome it was. He didn’t even let me sample it. He wanted all the yummy goodness for himself. Junior’s, makers of awesome NY style cheesecake, is also in the building.. The terminal also has retail stores like the Apple store, Kenneth Cole NY, Banana Republic and more. Basically it has all you could need under one roof. I will stop raving about the GCT and give you all a chance to enjoy the postcards from Grand Central Terminal.
