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!

Open House New York Redux

This past weekend we had a great time checking out as many OHNY venues as possible. For NYC geeks like ourselves, the weekend provided a plethora of events not to be missed. Since there are only two of us dividing and conquering doesn't even begin to solve our inability of being in more than two places at any given time. Out of the many interesting places to visit, we checked out the TWA Terminal at JFK,
checked out Louis Armstrong's house in Queens,


visited the Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen

gawked at the lobby of the Chrysler Building,



entered the catacombs at Green-Woods Cemetery in Brooklyn, and above all, had a great time. We're going through our photos and will bring you detailed posts and oodles of pictures soon.
