Enter Grand Central Station from 42nd St., walk down the ramp, turn right at the bottom of the ramp, walk down that ramp, and you will be right in the middle of the whispering hallway.

The Whispering Wall

Inside Grand Central Station its a hallway built so that you can stand in one corner, whisper, and someone standing in the diagonal corner can hear it. This occurs at all four corners of this passageway.
