Grand Central Terminal Centennial

February 1, 2013


There are features of every city that are assumed.  San Francisco has the Golden Gate Bridge, Paris the Eiffel Tower, and New York, Grand Central Terminal (Station).  And while there are dozens of other buildings, sites, landmarks (whatever you want to call them) around New York, Grand Central sings a different tune.   Maybe because it’s the only train station of its kind and the largest in the world, or because it was spared the fate that overcame Penn Station, or because it’s one place where anyone can feel the mass that is New York.

Meeting point, daily commute, apple store, vacation pictures, whatever your use, passing through the main hall always provokes appreciation.  Grand Central is one of those places that never gets old.  It’s constant, always there, and always handsome.

Today marks Grand Central Terminal’s 100th year.

    “Always handsome” Though it did succumb to the ’70’s and ’80’s like everyone else I suppose.
