A View into Grand Central Station

Grand Central, NYC
Photo by myself in Grand Central, at 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue.

This image is a view approaching the main waiting room at Grand Central Station. There are three bays of windows ahead but the space is much wider, with ornate stairs and mezzanines on each end.

The main waiting room at this train station is for those waiting to travel to upstate New York, Connecticut and Long Island. The subways located in tunnels below and the stations look nothing so grand as this.

WOW. I'm impressed you've managed to get such a clear picture. The ones i've always taken are so dark in there, i can never seem to get the light right. Amazing. Love it. :)

Oh I love railway stations - the big central stations. Whenever I go to a new city I always visit the railway stations. I don't like trains but there is something magnificent and yet busy and used about a big railway station. They are so alive. Love them.

Never been to NY's Grand Central Station - but hope to one day.

Thanks Lou!

If you adjust the ISO setting to 200 or higher, the film speed (or virtual film speed, in a digital camera) is more sensitive. Try it!

Yes, I love the the big stations in Europe mainly. They all seem to have the same vibe - airy and hustling.
