There are only two retail spaces left in Grand Central Terminal, and for the first time in 25 years, they are up for grabs. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced this week that they are making two sizable new spots available for restaurants.
One space is roughly 12,000 square-feet and located on the west side of Vanderbilt Hall. The marble floors used to serve as the waiting room and has been used for special events.
The other section that will be available for lease is the area above the Grand Central Market. The 4,700 square-foot space that is currently being used for storage will become a place where diners can enjoy a meal and a view from the balcony looking over the market.

Whether he’s regarded as a civil-rights freedom fighter or an anti-establishment adversary, there’s no doubt that Fela Kuti has had a significant effect on music across the world, especially in his home in Africa. The pioneer of Afrobeat, a genre which blends funk, jazz, and African drums, Kuti was key to the development of establishing peoples' rights in opposition to the military-led, totalitarian rule that has stained many African countries since they forced their way into power during the past century.
In respect for his achievements as a musician and political leader, Knitting Factory Records, in association with Giant Step, has announced a nationwide “Felabration” that will take place in more than 15 U.S. cities. The festivities will feature current musicians who have been instrumental in keeping Kuti’s music and message alive. DJ’s, including DJ Sun, Rich Medina, DJ Spinna, J-Justice, and Frank Gossner, will all be spinning the classic Afrobeat tracks, and artists such as Roy Ayers, Ikebe Shakdown, Amon, and others will be performing live versions of some of Kuti’s best.
