Grand Central Station Main Concourse

This photo was taken a week ago when I bumped into two wonderful tourists from England. They were in NYC for a couple of days to celebrate their 25th (I think) wedding anniversary before jetting off to Hawaii for the weekend. We started talking because we have the exact same camera (Canon G9) and we were both standing on the stairwell photographing the same scenery as you see in this photo above.

So have you usually talk to complete strangers?

Grand Central Station

This is a close-up shot of the northern wing of the main concourse at the Grand Central Station. The famous Tiffany clock is located right in the middle of the main concourse and sits on top of the information booth. The clock is estimated to cost over $10-$20 million.

So how many clocks do you have at home?

Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful...

It snowed yesterday afternoon for a couple hours and again, in the evening when I was on my way home. This photo was taken from inside the train car when the door opened at the Woodside station. I wanted to take a photo of the snow coating on the platform when a person walked by and I ended up with this wonderful photo.

So what kind of weather are you having now?

Waiting for the Train

Today is October 15, which means it is another subway theme day. This photo was taken at the Union Square subway station when I was waiting for the train to go home last weekend. The people you see in the photo are waiting for the downtown train while I was waiting on the other side for the uptown train.

The theme is shared by the following bloggers:
Budapest - New York City - Paris - Stockholm

Waiting for Amtrak Train at Penn Station

I got back from Boston yesterday afternoon. While in Boston, I ate a fair share of lobsters, clams, scallops and shrimp. I also have a new favorite dessert: Boston Cream Pie, which is more of a cake than a pie.

This photo was taken inside Penn (Pennsylvania) Station in Manhattan on Friday afternoon when I was waiting for my Amtrak train to Boston. The trip (on the high speed Acela train) took 3 hours 30 minutes and it was very comfortable, with plenty of leg room and personal space to relax and enjoy the journey. I have to admit, I love traveling by train. It's so much more civilized than what we called, "air travel" today.

So do you prefer to travel by plane, train or car?
