Grand Central Terminal turns 100

The Grand Central Terminal turns 100! I’ve searched for some links: flickr. com / telegraph.co.uk / theatlantic.com – when I walked through this hall I felt happy, feeling a certain mood like “we-are-in-the-same-boat”… – thanks to Noel / NYC♥NYC (1) and fotorené / Rene Alphenaar (2) and “verde, verde” (3) for sending their photos to my group BLOG IT!

    This Grand Central looks enormous to me, like the Cistine Chapel. Love celebrating history that remains standing.

  7. Your photos here are quite superb. I wasn’t able to find such a nice one for my post on the free sites.
    Did you hear that the shops were all charging 1913 prices yesterday? I wonder how much coffee and a breakfast cost in 1913?

      – an amusing idea!
      I believe we had in Germany 1913 inflation?
      So a coffee and a breakfast would cost 1,000 $$ maybe?
