Grand Easton Terminal is an squat yet ornate building in [[Easton]], [[Algonquin]], with its distinctive 3 large glass windows facing Hematite Street and Columbus Avenue, with Bismark Avenue leading to its frontal facade. Although its origin, Grand Central Station, features a spectacularly decorative central lobby, Grand Easton Terminal's concourse cannot be entered in game. The terminal is constantly in the shadow of the glass and steel monolith, [[GetaLife Building]]. The presence of this skyscraper is extremely imposing, especially when you view the Terminal and Skyscraper from Bismark Avenue, which leads up to the center of the terminal facade from the south, with restaurants on either side of the avenue. However, when lit up at night, The GetaLife Building seems less imposing and both the stone terminal and glass skyscraper harmonise with lighting fixtures. Around the terminal, not very far off the ground is a peripheral walkway for pedestrians, sporting benches, lamp posts and news stands.

GrandEastonTerminal-GTA4-exterior

The Grand Easton Terminal in GTA IV. The building is situated at the Columbus Avenue-Hermatite Street intersection.

Grand Easton Terminal is a major train station featured in the GTA IV rendition of Liberty City. The building is evidently based on Grand Central Terminal, which is located in New York City.

Appearence

Grand Easton Terminal is an squat yet ornate building in Easton, Algonquin, with its distinctive 3 large glass windows facing Hematite Street and Columbus Avenue, with Bismark Avenue leading to its frontal facade. Although its origin, Grand Central Station, features a spectacularly decorative central lobby, Grand Easton Terminal's concourse cannot be entered in game. The terminal is constantly in the shadow of the glass and steel monolith, GetaLife Building. The presence of this skyscraper is extremely imposing, especially when you view the Terminal and Skyscraper from Bismark Avenue, which leads up to the center of the terminal facade from the south, with restaurants on either side of the avenue. However, when lit up at night, The GetaLife Building seems less imposing and both the stone terminal and glass skyscraper harmonise with lighting fixtures. Around the terminal, not very far off the ground is a peripheral walkway for pedestrians, sporting benches, lamp posts and news stands.

Subway accessibility

Although Grand Easton Terminal's concourse is inaccessible, the Terminal still serves as a hub for the city's rapid transit system (via the Easton LTA). Every subway line converges there, making it a prime tourist area, as well as the Terminal's proximity to central Algonquin attractions, such as the Rotterdam Tower, the Civic Citadel, Star Junction, Middle Park and The Broker Bridge, however, is still a long walk up Columbus Avenue.

Although the main terminal is on Columbus Ave and Hematite Street, Subway Exits venture as far out as Burlesque & Iron Street for easier accessibility to Star Junction.

The subway station is also unique because it is the only subway station with two loading platforms that are underground.
