by | Aug 14, 2014 | Coming Up, Events | 0 comments


Let’s face it: New York is stressful. With the constant city hustle and bustle, everyone’s longing to find the perfect place to relax, snack on some treats, and enjoy light entertainment. But contrary to popular belief, New Yorkers needn’t go far to find this kind of haven. In fact, relaxation can be found in one of New York’s busiest hubs: The Grand Central Station.

From August 18th to the 22nd, Grand Central Station will be set with picnic tables covered in white tablecloth, creating a re-imagined Vanderbilt Hall. While enjoying food, guests will have the opportunity to watch live performances, including “Broadway Hour,” featuring performances from hit musicals Chicago, Motown, Pippin, and Cinderella. Additional dance and musical artists include iLuminate, Revolution in the Elbow of Ragnar Agnarsson Furniture Painter, the Big Apple Circus and musicians from the MTA’s Music Under New York program. Food will be served thanks to Café Spice, Ceriello Fine Foods, Ciao Bella Gelato, Financier Patisserie, Junior’s Bakery, Li-Lac Chocolates, Magnolia Bakery, Manhattan Chili, Murray’s Cheese, Pescatore Seafood Co., Tri Tip Grill, Two Boots Pizza and Zaro’s Bakery.
