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 360º panoramic photography, to document some of our favorite Old New York places.


Enjoy!

Jazz Age | Governors Island

While this is technically not old, it's "Old-Inspired." These photos were taken at the Jazz Age event/concert at Governor's Island. 

The band is Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra. Pretty great stuff - you can check them out here

Even better if you have a pair of wing tips


People put a lot of through into their outfits.
