Looking to grab the perfect gift or a quick bite on your commute home? A new Taste NY location coming to Grand Central Terminal will make it even easier for New Yorkers to purchase locally-made food, beer and wine right before they board their trains. Governor Cuomo recently announced that the MTA would expand their participation in the New York-made vendor program with the new Midtown location, which will join Penn Station in offering commuters along the Long Island Railroad and Metro-North Railroad lines with delicious local fare.
The decision to add the Grand Central Terminal location came after a competition issued by the Metro-North Railroad for host sites. The new shop will serve alongside other high quality retail outlets and become available to the 750,000 passengers that pass through the terminal each day. The effort is a part of the governor’s commitment to showcase the products of the state’s farms, breweries, and wineries.
“Taste NY is all about highlighting the world-class food and beverages that are produced all across New York, which supports tourism and economic activity in communities around the state,” Governor Cuomo said. “Opening a Taste NY store at Grand Central Terminal – one of the state’s most iconic and frequently utilized transit locations – is a great way to showcase the wealth of products that New York’s agricultural industry has to offer and encourage travelers to explore what they’ve been missing.”
