Happy 100th Anniversary !

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In the middle of the madness we call Manhattan is a place from another era. A place of magnificent beauty. A place built by one of the men who built America, railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt. The place is Grand Central Terminal and it is celebrating it’s 100th anniversary this year.

From the moment you approach Grand Central Terminal you are greeted with ornate steel (probably provided by Andrew Carnegie’s Steel Company) and fine woodwork.

The exterior of the terminal is illuminated by old time lighting to preserve the feeling of yesteryear.

As you enter you are greeted by floor to ceiling marble and chandeliers.

In the main section of the terminal the view gets exquisite.

The old time ticket windows are even magnificent.

On the second level just underneath these glorious windows is the famous Apple store that never closes.
