Do you believe in love at first sight? The first time I saw New York City, I was taken. For the last 20 years, I’ve had an intense romance with every corner, every building, and every street of the city. That’s why I was very excited when I saw the beautiful images of Grand Central Terminal by photographer David Katzenstein.
In 2014 Katzenstein received a commission to explore three central transportation hubs in Manhattan. Grand Central Terminal was the first hub and he was given access to exclusive areas of the terminal usually off limits to the public. One of my favorite places in Manhattan, “The terminal is an amazing architectural feat where over 750,000 people pass through each day on their way to and from work.” says Katzenstein, “It is a meeting place, a shopping place and a great place to people watch. Human energy is everywhere.”
Enjoy Mr. Katzenstein’s fabulous images, they might make you want to get a ticket to New York to bask in Grand Central Terminal’s unique New York energy.
