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!

McNulty's

Mc Nulty's is is one of those places that make New York unique. In business for over 100 years, the barrels of coffee beans, the apothecary jars filled with teas and the analog scales exude a calm that transports us to a simpler time. 



There are very few pre-packaged items in the store. Half the fun is to choose your tea or coffee and see it bring weighed, packaged and stamped. 







The smell at McNulty's is always amazing.




The tea selection is huge, from the traditional to the somewhat obscure. One thing we learned the hard way: 1/8 lb of tea is a LOT of tea. Who knew?
