Grand Central Facts & History Audio Tour: Definitely Worth The $2 In-app Purchase

If you’ve been to New York, you’ve surely walked through the spectacular Grand Central Terminal. We’ve been here hundreds of times, but until we downloaded Atlantis Audio Tours and paid the $2 in-app purchase, we didn’t know what we were missing!

The self-guided walking tour takes you to 17 points both inside and out, revealing the little known details about this busy railroad terminal.

With all the interesting shops and the hustle & bustle of the 750,000 daily commuters who pass you by, it’s easy to love Grand Central, but the facts and history give you an unforgettable appreciation. A lot has happened since this beautiful Beaux Arts structure opened in 1913!

New York City sightseeing will never be the same

Atlantis Audio Tour will show you all around Grand Central, and tell you the secrets that even we New Yorkers don’t know!

One fact we learned: When you walk toward Oyster bar, you’ll see people standing in opposing corners, whispering into the wall. Why? No matter how busy Grand Central is at that moment, they can hear each other’s voices diagonally across the large passageway!

Do you want more facts?
