One of the crown jewels of Manhattan, the grand dame of New York City, is turning 100. We are talking, of course, about Grand Central Terminal. A century ago, on February 2, 1913 – after a decade of construction – the building that would revolutionize commuter train travel opened its doors.

There isn’t anything to say that hasn’t been said before about the building’s grandiose and tumultuous history. So, we offer something else to commemorate one of the most amazing buildings in the city: a 360 look at Grand Central. Part of a larger project photographing iconic landmarks in glorious 360 degrees, we teamed up with Shots 360 and photographer Thomas Erh, the man behind the lens of interactive 360ยบ panoramic photography, to document some of our favorite Old New York places.


Enjoy!

Um.. hi there!

Welcome to Old New York. This blog is a repository photos, videos, places and stories that reflect the New York City of the past; it could be last year, last decade or last century. Our goal is to share info on old school experiences you can still check out for yourself should you be so inclined. However, since we make up the rules, every now and then we might post experiences that you may not be able to replicate, but such is life.

If you have a comment, gripe or anything you'd like to say, you can leave a comment or reach us at iloveoldny@gmail.com
