Trains pulling in and out, train departure announcements echoing through the concourse, and the ambient hustle and bustle of visitors all make up the typical Grand Central Terminal soundtrack. To help ease back into the daily routine, New York’s most iconic transit hub launches a dedicated Spotify channel featuring a variety of playlists for commuters and visitors to enjoy as they return to everyday life. Grand Central Terminal has teamed up with some of the city’s most iconic musical institutions to offer its visitors an enjoyable experience as they start their day, ride the train home, grab breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Titled GCTtracks, this new channel is free and accessible on Spotify by searching ‘Grand Central Terminal’. The four introductory playlists are curated by <a href=”https://www.steinway.com>Steinway & Sons, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Carnegie Hall and Joe’s Pub and showcase the diversity and richness of New York City’s music scene. Additional playlists will continue to be released ongoing.
