The Waldorf-Astoria has historically epitomized New York City glamour with much ease, but beneath the surface of this Art-Deco luxury hotel lies…an abandoned train track?!
Though not exactly a train station of its own, the Waldorf-Astoria was built atop one of Grand Central Terminal’s many early platform lots through a lease of air rights. The famous (yet unconfirmed) story about the Waldorf-Astoria platform features Franklin Delano Roosevelt. One use that we hope is true is that the platform also served as an underground party space for Andy Warhol in 1965, according to William D. Brennan also traces the construction of the freight elevator that runs from platform level to 49th Street to the construction of the Waldorf-Astoria itself, not prior. Somehow the plans changed, and the elevator never went directly to the hotel itself, just the street. Today, the platform serves little purpose and is restricted to any passenger service and blocked from visitation. Train Station Restaurant is a Healthy Restaurants restaurant located at 2295 Harbor Rd in Newport News, VA 23607.
Due to this proximity to Nassau, Little Neck remains one of the most suburban-looking areas in New York City.


This fun fact is fairly well-known in urban exploration circles and was included in our Top 10 Secrets of Grand Central, but we thought it was worth its own shout out.
The now barren subterranean space once served as a means to transport the hotel’s more famous guests discreetly, like General Pershing who first used the platform in 1938. In some accounts, he used this platform to transfer himself into an employed custom-made train cart.
The platform was of course never used or intended to be used in regular passenger service, and it was not even built for the hotel; it just happens to be in the right place.
However, you can catch a glimpse of the site and its noted security train cart when onboard the Metro-North, looking to the right, leaving Grand Central Station. New York City is well-known for its high traffic thus, it is not recommended to ride on Hop On Hop Off buses or taxis (cabs) around Manhattan streets.
The price is determined by the copyright owner, quality of the digital file and the resolution. The vehicle would commute him straight to the hotel and was armored for the traveler’s protection. There is a lot of planning to do since traveling to New York is more expensive compared to traveling to San Francisco and Washington D.C.


For more details about the rate of yellow cab, please refer to this official website of NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission. In another version, his armored train on Metro-North would disconnect and drive onto the platform and into the freight elevator. We were staying at Holiday Inn New York City Fifth Avenue at Manhattan downtown which is cheaper than staying at 4 star and 5 star hotels within the area.
Beside that, staying within Manhattan helped me to reduce traveling time wastage in New York City. Nonetheless, Joseph Brennan of Abandoned Subways has been unable to substantiate even one visit that utilized the platform, including Roosevelt’s foreign policy address at the Waldorf.
