The Landmark Beauty of Grand Central Terminal

Dear Abe, How President Kennedy loved Grand Central Terminal. [in her letter to then mayor Abe Beame to save Grand Central Terminal in the eleventh hour]

-Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, former First Lady, editor, and historic preservationist

 

this landmark beauty

Each day I get off the train in Grand Central, and walk into a gorgeous ornate Beaux Arts-style terminal. I always have my camera, either the Canon or the trusty iPhone. And I go looking for something that catches my eye differently than ever before. The light. The people. The buzz. It all makes me happy. Thank goodness this beautiful building is still around.

Below is a fun 15 second video of the rush rush rush, followed by some photographs that I’m putting together into a book. Come visit NYC and call me so I can meet you for a stroll. So many of you have taken me up on that. Thanks!

    • Hi Katie, glad you saw the man with the blue suitcase. What a magical building this is, so yes it’s a date, we will meet there and find interesting stories. xx

    I always enjoy being in Grand Central. I remembered at one time sitting on the ground in a corner watching various types of people and imagining stories as to why they were there. It was fun. Love the idea of hanging out there one day with you.

    • Janet, how nice of you to comment. I go in several days a week so let me know if you are there. I think now the guards frown upon sitting on the floor. Shame isn’t it?
