Lovely architecture and design. Many older railway stations in large cities have a style and grandeur that other transportation terminals sadly lack. Thanks for sharing.

Regards

Its difficult to shoot a place like that during the daytime with its hussle and bussle of the crowd. In the evening is better. It would eliminate a lot of those ghosts flowing through the scene. Also better chance of getting a good HDR shot. While its a grand place I think Toronto's Union Station is a bit more grand. I believe they were going to rename it to Toronto Grander Central Station.

Amazing and 'Grand' pictures, cmoy!

I like them all and the name Grand Central fits the building nicely.

Would you mind sharing some EXIF-data with us? Camera, lens, f-stop, exposure, et cetera....?

Thank you for sharing such grand motives and pictures!

Nice photos. Great building. Glad you didn't get busted for being a suspected "terrorist" in a public building.

Thanks Neil! I was a bit worried about that I tried to stick with tourist so I wouldn't stand out
