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!

Colony will soon be no more

Jeremiah's Vanishing New York has a post today about the closing of another iconic New York store. After 60 years in business, Colony Music will be shutting its doors for good next month.

It's always a sad day for us here at Old New York when we hear a beloved business is closing.  If there is a store, restaurant or other place that symbolizes New York City to you, please help support it by being a customer.
