Grand Central Terminal Trivia (and tour preview)

Fact: The 48-acre Grand Central Terminal is the world’s largest train station in the world in terms of the number of platforms: 44 (and 67 tracks). The platforms and tracks are below ground but are on two levels: 41 tracks on the upper level and 26 on the lower level. Creating two sub-levels of tracks was also a world's first. 

The station is an amazing place in it's triple threat nature as 1) the City's Best Landmark (well, in the Big Adventure's opinion),2)  a simply gorgeous building and 3) the busiest train station in America.

Find out more about all things Grand Central Terminal on our Mini-Tour Next Thursday on The Big Adventure Day Off! (The trivia on the tour only gets more interesting...we promise tales of Whispering Walls, A fake balcony, an incredibly valuable clock and even information about an ICBM that was on display but couldn't quite fit)
