Photographer's Note

I've decided to skip the more traditional straight-on view of the main hall in Grand Central Terminal, and show this view looking towards the ticket counters.

The interior of this great building remains very much the same as when it opened in 1913, but a lot has also changed. In the mid 1940's 65 million people traveled through Grand Central Terminal, catching trains that would take them all over the USA. Then came automobiles, and airplanes, and the golden age of rail travel was over.

In 1991 our national railway, Amtrak, left the terminal, and since that time only Metro-North commuter trains arrive in this great station.

Walking through the main hall I can still imagine what it must have felt like to begin a rail journey from Grand Central Terminal decades ago...
