Grand Central Terminal, which opened in 1912, was recognized as the largest and grandest railway station in the world. Encompassing nearly 48 acres on two levels, the terminal was built when rail was the predominate mode of travel. Grand Central Terminal still serves both suburban and long-distance travelers.
