Grand Central Terminal vs. Grand Central Station

"Although it has been properly called "Grand Central Terminal" since 1913, many people continue to refer to it as "Grand Central Station". Technically, that is the name of the nearby post office, as well as the name of a previous rail station on the site."

This debate has always driven me insane.

Listen up, whoever you are. NOBODY calls it "Grand Central Terminal"; NOBODY. And the next time you say "technically", immaknock you out.

New Yorkers refer to it simply as "Grand Central". We leave off the last bit since we know it can be such a fucking bone of contention with some of you ham and eggers.

If you need me, I'll be cooling off at The Campbell Apartment drinking Jack & Gingers. Come find me.
