The total number of tracks along platforms and in rail yards exceeds 100 as most previous tracks that are not in regular use are used for the rail yard.

Unlike other Metro-North stations, Grand Central Terminal is not owned by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, but by a private company known as Midtown TDR Ventures.

The upper-level tracks are reached from the Main Concourse or from various hallways and passages branching off from it.

On the east side of the Main Concourse is a cluster of food purveyor shops called Grand Central Market.

The name was also used for the renovated Grand Central Depot, from 1900 until its demolition in 1903.

The tracks are numbered according to their location in the terminal building.

Until 1991, the terminal also served Amtrak, which moved to nearby Pennsylvania Station upon completion of the Empire Connection.

The East Side Access project is underway to bring Long Island Rail Road service to the terminal.

Each of the four clock faces is made from opalescent glass (now often called opal glass or milk glass), though urban legend has it that the faces are made of opal and that Sotheby's and Christie's have estimated their value to be between million and million.
