Photographer's Note

In my previous photo, I was outside the new skyscraper called One Vanderbilt. It sits directly next to Grand Central Terminal. For this view, I stepped just inside the very tall lobby to look out at the terminal. Most of the lobby is off-limits to guests, but there is a small section that connects to Grand Central, and also to the observatory above.

The large, arched windows on the façade of the terminal are iconic. There are three windows each on the east, west, and north sides and they are about 60 feet (18 meters) high. The design was inspired by the Palais Garnier in Paris, and the windows also hold a secret: there are catwalks made of rock crystal running across the inside of the east and west windows. Every once in a while, if you look closely, you can see a tiny figure crossing one of the levels. Only certain employees of Grand Central Terminal have access to the catwalks, though.

The small plaza in between the two landmark buildings was filled with people, and another iconic skyscraper was peeking out at the top of the frame. I’m sure many of you can guess which building it is. :-)
