about Grand Central Terminal:
The Dining Concourse on the lower level has a nice seating area, for which the centerpieces are old style depot benches. Kids can choose from a number of store fronts, from pizza to the legendary Juniors. Nearby, you'll find old stand-by (and more formal) The Oyster Bar. The balconies above the Main Concourse house several more expensive and elegant dining options, like Metrazur, Cipriani Dolci, and Michael Jordan's Steakhouse. A quick walk around should find the perfect place to satisfy anyone's palate.
The kid-friendly New York Transit Museum offers free admission.
