The Biltmore Room

You're in the Biltmore Room, once a popular arrival area for long-distance travelers on the New York Central Railroad.

Formerly nicknamed the "Incoming Train Room" and the "Kissing Room," this room served as a space where arriving travelers would greet and reunite with loved ones.

In its heyday, a lot of those travelers were soldiers returning home from the battlefield.
