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.



Quality Fabric | Brooklyn

In a not too distant past, the garment industry in New York was thriving. These days, while some fabric stores still remain in midtown, some of the smaller outlets in the boroughs are disappearing. 

We were happy to find Quality Fabrics in Brooklyn, which we guess looks more or less like it always has: tin ceilings and bolts and bolts of fabrics. 
 And at $4 a yard, even the prices seem like a thing of the past.
