TRUTH !!
Grand Central Station gives you a dose of radiation when you go through it,
thanks to the granite used to build it.

Radiation is a part of the natural world, and so things made with natural
materials often contain radioactive elements. In the case of Grand Central
Station, the natural material is granite. All natural rocks contain traces
of radioactive elements, but granite contains more than others, and certain
specimens of granite contain especially high concentrations.

It's still too little to affect you, though !
