6. Discover a Lost Mural Inside the Wine Shop

The murals inside the Central Cellar wine store in Grand Central, next to Track 17, were rediscovered during the restoration of the terminal in the 1990s. They were once part of the movie theater Grand Central Theatre, which opened in the 1930s, playing shorts, cartoons, and news reels.

The first film to screen at the theater was the MGM film Servant of the People: The Story of the Constitution of the United StatesAccording to the website, I Ride the Harlem Line, the theater was advertised as the “most intimate theatre in America” and was open every day until midnight. Another fun tidbit is that the theater was designed by Tony Sarg, the same person who created the first balloons for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, including Felix the Cat!
