    Trains are late more often than not. Make sure you check before you end up waiting for hours.

    A visit to the lobby is worthwhile, simply to look up & see the roof! Good coffee at Cafe Parisi.

    You gotta get the app, cool way to learn about the history. But also, it's a creepy dead zone in here. How can it be a better used space?

    There is a giant atrium here with doors leading (ostensibly) to the platforms, and then you go board in a dinky corner of the building. This is a shame. Boarding a train used to be glamorous

    It's still a working train station with a lot of rotating exhibits, Science City, restaurants and the city's largest cinema screen. It was the site of a shootout between officers and mobsters in 1933.
