Winters Last Light in Grand Central Terminal

This location has been on my shoot list for quite some time, so I jumped at the chance when my photog friend Dan Horton put together a Merry band of Photographers to head into NYC and shoot Grand Central Terminal (with permits for tripods).

You can’t help but think of the history of this place. Built in the late 1800’s, the original “station” was ripped down, and replaced with the current building in 1913. I read a statistic that 40% of the US population once flowed through this place. Its vaulted celestial ceiling, magnificent windows, and famous information booth saw the Great Depression, World War I and World War II, the nuclear and space ages… Simply amazing.

Today hundreds of thousands of people a week rush down its stairs, through its tracks, and its main lobby to destinations near and far. And through all the rush and hub-ub, the building itself sits quietly, majestically, a cavernous testament to the quiet will of man.

Enjoy!

Just a quick P.S…. we really lucked out… was talking to a Police Officer in the Terminal while I was there… the sun only rises through the main station windows during the late winter months… a few more days and we would have missed this dazzling show…
