The magnificent Grand Central Station.... you've all seen it on TV but you dont feel how spectacular it is until you are standing in the middle of the concourse







Not the easiest place to photograph.... its pretty dull and a flash would be useless due to the scale of the place
Stuball

Robbery at the Waldorf!



I had trouble getting out of the area because every taxi driver kept stopping me to ask what was going on.... should have put the camera away
wee minx

 you would think they would be used to people taking photos..or was it your BIG ZOOM?
Stuball

I think it was the combination of big IS lens, standing on the corner watching things and the backpack giving it the whole paparazi look

Love that old and new pic Stu...
It could have been so much easier to just rip the old place down and put glass and steel in its place.

Quite a stark and contrasting image ...
Alex Glass

More! More! More!

Wow Stu

I was wondering what happened there...


Great find, kev - I love New York.  


As for a "twin cities" thing. Funnily enough, when you look at NY prior to the horrible
glass & concrete towers going up, a lot of the Victorian era buildings and tenements
look a lot like those in British cities, including Glasgow.

I might register on there and post summat like "nice pics, we've got stuff like this
on our forum..."

Hi Guys,

Seems there is a wee issue just now in the BBCode options of Flickr.
This is causing little issues with the layout of the page. Below i have
included a quick wee graphic to help things along and keep the page
justification intact.

In the first image all the highlighted argument needs to be on another
line, So if you put your cursor between the url][url and hit enter this
will solve the coding issues and give you a similar layout as image two.
You could also just delete all of the text highlighted as the photo still
carries the Flickr page redirect as laid out in their community rules.

Cheers, Cybs
