MM 214 Grand Central Station

I sent this photo to Leanne Cole a couple of weeks ago for her Monochrome Madness 214 but then forgot to upload my WordPress post before going on vacation. Well, we’re now back from our recent trip to Guam and so here is my entry for MM 214. It’s a shot I took  last year of New York City’s Grand Central Station with the Chrysler Building in the background.

Grand Central Station is on Vanderbilt Avenue and East 42nd Street. That’s the Chrysler Building in the background. The glass building between Grand Central and Chrysler is the Grand Hyatt.

Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by her website on Wednesdays (Tuesdays in Europe and North America) to see what Leanne and other photographers from all over the world are doing on monochrome these days.

I guess the cast-iron bald eagle perched over the entrance to the Station is appropriate for today’s celebration of our nation’s birthday. The eagle weighs about 4,000 pounds and has a wing spread of 13 feet.

I missed MM 215 and MM 216 but will be back for MM 217 next week with a photo from our latest Guam vacation. The header on today’s post is one of many Guam sunsets I photographed during the last two weeks. You’ll probably see a few more in the next several weeks.

Happy Fourth of July, everyone!

    Happy belated 4th back to you! Grand Central Station is iconic in so my ways. Did you happen to peek in at the Cambell Apartments, located on the west side balcony? M 🙂

    First, hope you have a good trip back to Guam. Campbell Apartments, as I knew it, is now called “The Campbell.” (Sorry for my mis-spelling above…) From its website: “Since its days as Jazz Age financier John William Campbell’s private office and reception hall, the space has been thoughtfully and meticulously restored … ” (https://www.thecampbellnyc.com/about)
    Jeanne and I stopped in for an “expensive” cocktail and to experience the ambiance some time ago. It’s located in the balcony area opposite the large Apple Store …in Grand Central station. M 🙂
