100 years Grand

One of my favourite buildings in NY is the stunningly beautiful Grand Central Station. This Grand old dame of the city turns 100 today. It's hard to put into words just how stunning this building is, nothing prepares you on your first visit the wonder it brings as you walk into the main concourse. There is nothing in London which comes close to this majestic building.
I arrived just before 7am and sat on the steps with a coffee and watched the city and station come to life. The commuters passed through it as part of their daily hustle and bustle of working life. I would be seriously late for work each day if I had to walk through here! Along with the overground, Amtrak and subway services, it also has a great food concourse and several shops. During the month of December it also houses a holiday craft market sited in the area leading onto 42nd street. 

Sited opposite the Grand Central Station on 42nd street under the avenue is Pershing Square, one of my breakfast diners of choice. Breakfasts here are much sort after and is a favourite diner for breakfast business meetings. It reminds me of a very large old style railway carriage. I never go to New York and not get her at least once for A stack of Pancakes, blueberrys, bacon loaded with maple syrup!.... Absolutely yummy!...you must add both of these places to your New York to do list.
