Grand Central Station vs Penn Station A World of Difference

 Today I visited TIAA at 3rd Avenue and 47th Street to get some financial guidance for my retirement at the end of this year.  On the way back I thought I's walk around Grand Central Station.  It is so much nicer than Penn Station which is a hole in the ground.  There were a few concourses with many impressive retail establishments.  There was a large food court on the ground floor with many fast food outlets.  Only Metro-North stops at Grand Central while NJ Transit, the LIRR and Amtrak services Penn Station which to say the least is overcrowded even in off-peak hours.

I also stopped at the New York City Transit Museum.  Much of the stuff for sale were items for children.  I did buy a refrigerator magnet for Karen.
