We in WAG country often find ourselves in Grand Central Terminal – after all, it’s our entry point to the city when we’re traveling by rail.
Some days it’s a slog; some days it’s a delight.
The terminal’s promotional team has pointed out its May events and programs in hopes our time at the terminal will lean toward the delightful.
Here are some of the highlights:

Noon to 6 p.m. May 10 through 12.
- Greek Panorama – Vanderbilt Hall will spotlight the attractions of Greece, touching on tourism, culture and gastronomy as explored through exhibitors, live entertainment, food and more. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 12 and 13.
