Grand Central Station -- free!


The City opened Park Avenue from Astor Place all the way to 50th street this weekend, which allowed full access to the area around the top of Grand Central Station. Typically, you can only get this view from a speeding cab, but this weekend everyone biked, walked or sat around Grand Central Station. And had a great time. This shot shows the Met Life building, Grand Central and the spire of the Chrysler Building (thanks Enitharmon!).

I fell in love with Grand Central the first time I arrived in New York.

And, tut! Even I know that's the spire of the Chrysler building, not the Empire State!

I was downtown yesterday shooting. Groan, all we have are about 5 high rise buildings, skyscrapers they're not compared to yours. Lovely view of your city today.

Great beautiful angle!

I love it when cities close off streets to cars even just for a little while. You must have had a field day photographing buildings — without the fear of getting run over!

Wow! I know this is an everyday image for you, but to me it's awesome.

I took the bus to Park Avenue later that afternoon and it was dead. All the activities have ceased. :-(

That's what happens when someone *ahem* sleep till past noon on Saturday. UGH!

Love the guy's tiny face in the bottom corner bathed in light and breeze.. nice perspective. He was enjoying the monumental city too!

What a cool photo! Great angle. I like the way it includes three iconic New York buildings.
