What to do in Grand Central?
- admire the architecture and its “inverted” celestial vault of the French painter Paul Helleu
- play tennis: there are two courts
- eat in a fast food restaurant or at the prestigious Oyster Bar
Nb: if you choose to eat at the Oyster Bar, you will enjoy a splendid setting. However, note that your addition may be quite high.
For example: count $7 for coca and $83 for two sandwiches (excluding tip – price 2014).
