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


Enjoy!

Under the J Train

Most people when thinking of the New York City subway system automatically imagine subterranean trains  running through a web of underground tunnels. While this is true for Manhattan, several of the outer borough lines are actually above ground. The J train is a prime example, coming above ground at the Williamsburg Bridge and running on an elevated track all the way to Jamaica Center (JFK airport, basically).



Today we took a stroll between the Kosciuszko St station and the Marcy Ave station, photographing the old, the new and the in-between. 




Yes, this is a chicken coup, right on Broadway! While many parts of Brooklyn surrounding the J train are rapidly gentrifying, this part of Broadway remains a mixture of derelict building, strong ethnic enclaves and lots of fun things to explore.
