  • Main station having everything you would need
  • I really enjoyed my first steps coming out the train to this beautiful interior. The refreshing view and very clean environment was a beautiful topping to it! I loved every bit of this place. The stores are a nice, but nothing special as it is a train station. I did enjoy the bakery that was there, some others may find it just a normal place, but coming from looking at NYC stations all day, this was a treat! I decided to work to my hotel and enjoyed the outer areas, though I didn't take any pictures it. As a tourist it is fun to see, as a local, it would be just another day.
