Grand Central Terminal

by in Architecture, Photography, Travel

What an amazing visit I had today to Grand Central Terminal in New York City. I was lucky to be able to tag along with a group of the nicest ladies and Daniel, who took us to the most unbelievable and (previously) secret placesin the world’s biggest, best and most amazing railroad terminal. Daniel did a fantastic job and kept all of us mesmerized for hours.

Thank you ladies, thank you Daniel!

I look forward to sharing the story and some more photos, a.s.a.p. when I get them processed.

This photo was taken from the opposite window to what you see at the end of the terminal. There are glass walkways, so we could walk "inside" the huge windows. As you can see the window could also open. For me it was the window of opportunity...

 

To take this photo I had to go through the situation room of Grand Central, the control room, through a secret door and climb up an old rusty ladder all the way up behind the iconic Tiffany's clock. How about it?

      Thanks, Tania! ;-)

      I am glad to hear that. The Grand Central experience was certainly special. Just wait until you see some of the other photos that will be coming up…

      Actually, I was dead tired, feeling washed up and worn down, when I arrived to New York. But after recuperating for a couple of days, I was flying again – or should I say “on rails”? In any case, I am having a good time, while I also think about how I will keep the adventures going after this trip is over. I have to – because now I have become addicted to adventure! ;-)

      Best regards
      Erik
