@GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL VANDERBILT HALL

Japan Week returns to Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Station! From March 14-17, the hall transforms into a wonderland that showcases many splendors of Japan – and this year includes a 3D Trick Art installation.

Located just off of East 42nd Street and Park Ave, Vanderbilt Hall is the main entrance to the Terminal and boasts 48-foot ceilings and five gold chandeliers.

This year, the theme of Japan Week is "3D Trick Art"!

A popular phenomenon in Japan, Trick art is a large-scale interactive work of art that seemingly adds a third dimension, creating the illusion that the depicted objects really exist.

Visitors to Japan Week will be encouraged to “step into” each work of 3D Trick Art and take the ultimate selfie.

How to take photos with 3D Trick Art?

Once in front of the Trick art, have your photographer tell you where to stand. It may not look three dimensional from your standpoint, but put on your best smile and have fun!

If you are the one taking photos, there will be a mark indicating where the best standpoints are, so have your subject/friend stand on or near that mark to take the good shot.
