Construction of Grand Central Station in 1912.
It’s a fascinating story, this.
I commute through Grand Central every day for work, and despite the crowds and the tourists and the school groups, I appreciate the excuse to walk through that building every single day.
“A few times in my life I’ve had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp. And the world seems so fresh as though it had all just come into existence. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be.” - A Single Man (2009)
