This station was set up in 1904 and lasted until the late 90’s, but, pitilessly, it closed for some unknown reasons, but the best part is that people are still allowed to visit and explore the spectacular station if they are members of NYC Transit Museum, which is actually the museum that is responsible for organizing tours.
2 The Dream House
The Dream House is an inventive arty house that was built back in 1993 by a lovely artistic couple that was composed of an artist and a composer. Apparently, their professions were the real motivation behind pushing them to build such an amazing house that, we believe, should actually have been named as The House of Art because this exceptional house represents all the main aspects of the uncanny arts, including both the visual and musical kind of arts. This place might not be an actual dream house, but it promises you an experience of a variety of new sentiments and thoughts as soon as you get to see the unpredictable flux and wavering of the neon pink light that make an appearance with every move that you make, besides; these spectacular lights are accompanied by a various echo of musical sounds.

Let us tell you all the fancy details about this impressive place; first, it is located in a secretive corridor that is situated right underneath the Grand Central Terminal. This gallery has a remarkable name as well as a splendid possession and this possession is actually why it is described as the whispering; this corner of this place is provided with amazing auditory properties, making the corner work as a transmitter for the sounds and the voices, as they get sent across the other side of the hall. Yes! It is very interesting. These one of a kind properties reminded us of the horror movie named “The Hills Have Eyes”; a name that turned out to be true and it is pretty similar to an old saying that was popular among the Egyptians, which is “The Walls Have Ears”, and it turned out to be right as well. This saying leads us to become skilled at keeping our voices near to the ground, so strangers won’t hear our little secrets. Hush people! You have to keep your voices down; in case you have a secret you want to keep as it is.

This magnificent place has not been around for a very long, for it was built in 2007 by Damien Hirst; an English artist, art collector, and entrepreneur as well, besides; he is not actually an ordinary artist; he has been the most eye-catching and prominent member of the Young British Artists and he also took the lead of most, in not all, of the art scenes all throughout the 90’s in the United Kingdom and, of course, this bar has been a clear evidence.
