For the first time since well before World War II, you can stand at 42nd St and Madison Ave in New York City and see the full west side and south side of Grand Central Terminal at the same time. I have been coming to this building since I was about 5 and I have never seen this. The demolition of several buildings so that a new taller-than-Empire-State-Building structure called One Vanderbilt has created this scape. The building developers are spending some of their money on the new Long Island Railroad terminal that is being built under GCT. I have seen the drawings and I think the building will be not bad. But if you want this view get it now boys and girls!
An ongoing and growing collection of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of the railroad world because most of us don't get out after sundown. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
