Grand Central Terminal – New York City

10/19/2010:

This is a 3 exposure HDR taken in Grand Central Station. I tried to use my tripod since I saw somewhere that a person had been able to use his here. However, security quickly stopped me so I had to set the camera on a ledge to get this shot.  Grand Central Terminal (GCT) — often incorrectly called Grand Central Station, or shortened to simply Grand Central — is a terminal station at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan in New York City. Built by and named for the New York Central Railroad in the heyday of American long-distance passenger trains, it is the largest train station in the world by number of platforms:[3] 44, with 67 tracks along them. They are on two levels, both below ground, with 41 tracks on the upper level and 26 on the lower, though the total number of tracks along platforms and in rail yards exceeds 100.  from Wikipedia.
