ICONIC NYC LANDMARKS IN FILMS & TV SHOWS 🎬🗽
🍿🤓 The Avengers 2012
The majority of the battle of New York takes place on the Grand Central Terminal Viaduct above 42nd Street, just outside the Main Terminal. This is where Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow spend the majority of their time during the fight. The classic Avengers shot (where the camera rotates around the six heroes), takes place here.
Grand Central Terminal (also referred to as Grand Central Station or simply as Grand Central) is a commuter rail terminal located in Midtown Manhattan, New York City.
The distinctive architecture and interior design of Grand Central Terminal's station house have earned it several landmark designations, including as a National Historic Landmark. Its Beaux-Arts design incorporates numerous works of art. Grand Central Terminal is one of the world's ten most visited tourist attractions, with 21.6 million visitors in 2018, excluding train and subway passengers. The terminal's Main Concourse is often used as a meeting place, and is especially featured in films and television. Grand Central Terminal contains a variety of stores and food vendors, including upscale restaurants and bars, two food halls, and a grocery marketplace.
Grand Central Terminal was built by and named for the New York Central Railroad; it also served the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad and, later, successors to the New York Central. Opened in 1913, the terminal was built on the site of two similarly-named predecessor stations, the first of which dates to 1871. Grand Central Terminal served intercity trains until 1991, when Amtrak began routing its trains through nearby Penn Station. The East Side Access project, which will bring Long Island Rail Road service to the new Grand Central Madison station beneath the terminal, is expected to be completed in late 2022.
