When New York’s Grand Central Terminal opened a little over 100 years ago, architectural firm Reed and Stem’s plans called for the building of an entire new city surrounding the Beaux-Arts station. While that train-centered city was never fully realized, the station alone is packed with a day’s worth of things to see and do.

Popular with the locals, this little café serves up strong espresso and an Australian-inspired brekkie. The Smash (avocado toast) has wide appeal, but a Pick Me Up (omelet sandwich with tabasco, tomatoes and caramelized onions) to start your day is highly recommended.
Enhance your stay in Midtown with a visit to The Museum of Modern Art. In addition to its renowned permanent collection, MoMA presents special exhibitions that are often among the best tickets in town.
If you’re late to an outing or suffered a last-minute spill—or you’re just looking for the next big thing in suit shopping—try out Suitsupply. It’s the Zara of high-end suits (and provides all the uniforms for our staff!), a suit store on the fast fashion model. Most pieces are off the rack but tailoring is available. While the store prides itself on being accessible to everyone, don’t worry—you can still get all the Italian wool you want.
Café Grumpy lets their coffee speak for itself. The company started roasting its own beans in 2009 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It’s since expanded to locations around the city, and still focuses on quality and selecting beans from socially and environmentally responsible producers worldwide. Stop at the Grand Central Terminal shop for espresso, brewed coffee, and locally-sourced pastries. Don’t miss an excellent opportunity for people watching as busy commuters make their way in and out of the terminal.
