I commuted through good old Grand Central Station so many times in the 80's and into the 90's. Here's to another 100 years!!!

Before I moved to Westchester to start a family, I would regularly meet up with friends traveling from subway points north and south of Grand Central—we met at the clock countless times to head out for midtown Manhattan fun. Now my kids love eating in the food court and talking into the four corners outside of the Oyster Bar. It's not just a place to pass through—it's a destination.

Yes, it is a destination, with tremendous character. I only occasionally have cause to be in Grand Central, but each time, it evokes a smile, and nostalgic thoughts. I remember one time, I saw Al Roker, heading to his train, and he was right under a picture of Al Roker.... it gave me a big laugh. The picture was promoting what was then "Newscenter Four".
