Over 1 million people will pass through Grand Central Terminal every day this holiday season. The massive transit hub is also home to one of the most popular holiday fairs in New York City. There’s no place more grandeur in size and history than this landmark to get your holiday shopping done. Whether you’re commuting to work or headed out to a night on the town, a visit to Grand Central Terminal is an opportunity to take part in something bigger. Shopping the curated craft fair within the historical Vanderbilt Hall adds to the experience of gifting your loved ones with locally made, unique treasures during the Centennial celebration of this iconic building.

More than just the busiest subway stop in the city, the terminal has become a destination for locals and visitors alike, taking in the elaborate astronomical mural on the ceiling over the Main Concourse, the architectural detail dedicated to the Vanderbilt family, and the “whispering gallery” that echos sound from one corner to another. Add the extensive list of holiday booths to the “must see” list for visitors who will want to bring home one-of-a-kind gifts for their loved ones. For the 750,000 people who pass through Grand Central daily, the Holiday Fair will offer a way to cross off their shopping list with handcrafted goods ranging from contemporary jewelry from Victoria Bekerman Studios to vintage-inspired cuddly children’s blankets by Hanky Blanky to handcrafted blown glass sculptures by Internal Fire Glass, while on their way home.
