Grand Central Terminal, New York City


According to Love Exploring, Grand Central Terminal in New York City is New York State's "most beautiful building."

Love Exploring states:

Probably the most famous train station in the world, Grand Central Terminal really is grand. Opened in 1913, it features a ceiling fresco in the Main Concourse depicting the constellations of the zodiac and the building itself has been designated a National Historic Landmark due to its magnificent Beaux-Arts facade.

For the record, I'm not saying Grand Central Terminal isn't beautiful. It certainly is! It's just surprising that's considered the state's most beautiful building by Love Exploring but not Google.
