I took a walk Tuesday night to Grand Central, one of my favorite buildings. Small booths were up for holiday shopping.
What many people don't know is that there is a market hall inside that's open all year round. Very similar to the food area at Harrod's in London, Grand Central Market sells specialty foods. There is always a buzz here.
A view down the Grand Central Market. Stalls sell specialty cheeses, spices, coffees, fish, veggies, baked goods and everything else you could imagine.
At times you can get good deals - two beautiful tuna steaks for the price of one, anyone? I was sorely tempted by the huge array of cheeses at Murray's. After much browsing, I left with a half dozen decorated cupcakes for Mark's sweet tooth, from Zaro's.
For those with a little time to kill before the next train to upstate New York or Connecticut, it's the perfect place to purchase a last-minute gift.
