New York: Grand Central & Chrysler

Grand Central Terminal (GCT) — colloquially called Grand Central Station, or shortened to simply Grand Central —is a commuter rail terminal station at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan in New York City. The new terminal opened on February 2, 1913 and it is the largest train station in the world by number of platforms: 44, with 67 tracks along them.

The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco style skyscraper in New York City, located on the east side of Manhattan in the Turtle Bay area at the intersection of 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue. At 1,046 feet (319 m), the structure was the world’s tallest building for 11 months before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building in 1931.
