Planet of the Apes Wiki

Grand Central Terminal (also known as Grand Central Station) is a major transportation hub in New York City.

Death of the Planet of the Apes

In the far future, astronaut Taylor sees a vision of Grand Central Terminal during its devastation by a nuclear holocaust almost 2,000 years earlier. He sees missiles triggering a fault line at New York City and the area around Grand Central Terminal buried under radioactive rubble just as a military train arrives with a deadly cargo. General Mendez places the area under martial law and conscripts the civilians. After decades believing themselves to be the only survivors on the planet, Mendez discovers that others live on the surface, but decides to keep his highly-ordered community underground in ignorance.

Beneath the Planet of the Apes

Soon after Taylor's vision, ANSA astronaut Brent and Nova were taken to the ruins of Grand Central Terminal where members of the Mutant Tribunal interrogated Brent to learn the plans of Ape City.


  • Barbra Streisand can be seen at the beginning of the 1969 film Hello, Dolly! walking through the 'Grand Central Station' set - later transformed into the mutant 'Tribunal Room' in Beneath the Planet of the Apes.[1][2]
