Weekend Reflections: New York City

I (Grace) was in New York City two weeks ago. I finished my business meeting in the morning and had a few hours before leaving for the airport. It was a chilly but sunny day. I started out from my hotel on the 42nd Street which is next to the Grand Central Station. You can see the contrast of the modern glass building and the classical landmark.

This is the impressive interior of the huge hall of the Grand Central Station.

Well, it was time for a late lunch. You can see the window reflections onto two bold-colored vases.

Here is the famous St. Patrick's Cathedral on the 5th Avenue. Its delicate stone work and the clouds reflect onto the modern glass building.

Finally I passed by a shop window. You can see the reflections of St. Patrick's Cathedral and me on the window. The "life model" was in the middle of arranging the display.

Great refections of New York City, enjoyed your photos!

By the way Grand Central Terminal was saved by the leaders and citizens of NYC including the late Jackie Kenndy Onassis. The court battle lasted for almost ten years, it went all the way to the Supreme Court.
