New York City: Grand Central Terminal
Grand Central Terminal, 42nd Street..
Rebuilt: 1913, 1994-2000..
Grand Central Terminal was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976.
The original ceiling, painted in 1912 by French artist Paul César Helleu. It was renovated in the late 1930s ..
Bad Image of one significant sculpture..
I regret whatever prevented me from crossing the road and take the photo. But maybe this calls for another trip..
Outside the station, the clock in front of the Grand Central facade is the world's largest example of Tiffany glass and is surrounded by sculptures carved by the John Donnelly Company of Minerva, Hermes and Mercury.
