December turns NYC’s most iconic train station into a winter wonderland. Look up at the stars in the grand hall, then check out the towering holiday tree. And don’t forget to shop for gifts in Vanderbilt Hall, which features a diverse mix of vendors and products in an elegantly decorated environment.
