Outside Grand Central Station, in Midtown

Grand Central, at night
Photo by myself outside Grand Central Station, at Park Avenue and 42nd Street.

Grand Central Station is one of the most stately and photogenic buildings in New York. The lighting of the building is superb at night.

The delicate bridge in the foreground brings traffic down to Park Avenue. Cars heading south zip around the building at a higher level, then travel down a ramp to street level. It is a very cool moment in the city.


I apologize for what I consider to be a cliche'd photo today. I worked much too late Wednesday night and while searching for a cab, I found myself outside Grand Central.

It's been so busy and stressful lately. I will spare you my complaints. Fortunately, Mark and I are off to visit LA for the weekend, for some much-needed rest and time with my parents.

This blog will keep running, of course, never fear.
