Grand Central Station – It’s Just Grand!

Like many old railroad stations around the country, Grand Central has recreated itself as a destination in its own right.    It’s filled not only with people getting on and off trains, but also with people who are coming to the station for the restaurants and the shopping.


This trip, I discovered the Grand Central Market, with beautiful produce, fish, meat and cheese.  Oh!  And I don’t want to leave out the spices, flowers and the wine shop! 

If you forgot someone on Valentine’s Day, you can make it up!  And everything with red hearts is for sale!

If your favorite child of any age is having a birthday, this M&M’s cake is certain to be a huge hit.

Then I found these sardines – silly me!  I thought they came in cans!

If you are a native New Yorker and a serious cook looking for fine ingredients, you’ll fine them here!  Or if, like me, you are a tourist looking for prepared foods that might make a wonderful picnic, you won’t be disappointed. 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The market is in Grand Central Station near the exits to Lexington Avenue.
