It takes a lot to slow down NYC commuters, but plopping a squash court in the middle of Grand Central Terminal might do the trick. Enter the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions, which takes place at the historic transit hub January 22–28. Played on a brightly lit, glass-enclosed court in Grand Central's sprawling Vanderbilt Hall, the tournament looks like a combination of the US Open and the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue. Each year it draws 150,000 onlookers who have the option of watching from paid seats behind and alongside the court, or standing for free along the front glass wall.
