Grand Central Station in New York City is celebrating 100 years this month. This is a special train station to me as I take the train every day to commute to work from my small town to the big city. As soon as I arrive at Grand Central, I'm transported into this enchanting place with passengers from around the world. Grand Central has been totally renovated and restored. I took these pictures in black and white to show the beautiful architecture. The ceiling has a constellation that lights up, just like being under the stars.
This month, they are showcasing the history of Grand Central with various displays. This is a vintage sketch showing the main concourse and correlates to my first photograph.
Grand Central displays some beautiful and majestic chandeliers.
Here is one of them reflected in the window.
This is another of the many gorgeous chandeliers.
The architecture of the ceiling is so detailed and brilliantly unique.
This is another display showing a set of antique suitcases. I edited this photo in sepia to give it a vintage look. Imagine all the passengers that have come through this station over the last 100 years, how many lives, stories, tears, laughter, parting, reuniting, and so much history in this wonderful train station. Well, I think it's grand! Enjoy the tour!
