If you remember meeting under the clock at Grand Central Terminal, you might remember the Kissing Room.

The MTA will vote Wednesday on spending $15 million to restore that long-forgotten nook, located in the northwest corner of the terminal.

In its glory, the Kissing Room was a more intimate arrival point for cross-country travelers.

Now, it's set to become the welcome point for 80,000 Long Island Rail Road riders who will use the new East Side Access service.

Of course, kissing will be optional.
