Typical shot of Grand Central Station
It's not uncommon for tourists to visit major places of transit - particularly ones that are historic and beautiful, such as Grand Central Station in NYC. I heard that Penn Station was also gorgeous and ornate before they tore it down many decades ago before realizing what they had destroyed. Whoops!
This is a true traveler's mecca. Lots of specialty stores, tons of places to grab a quality bite to eat, and always impeccably clean. I don't ride the train very often, but it would not surprise me if an old coal-eating train pulled out of such a historic and timeless station.
I took a photography class here, which made it easier and more comfortable to just loiter and take lots of pictures of this beautiful hall. It was funny though, most people passing through here were toting huge cameras so we fit right in! We then ventured into Grand Central Market which I had never done before and I'm glad I did! Wow, talk about gourmet everything! Too bad it's so expensive, but if you're ever in a rush and want top-quality food, you can be sure to find it right here!
