The Grand Central Terminal is one of my favorite places to visit. Fom the Grand Central Market, with it’s amazing take home food, wine and flowers, to the casual dining in the lower food court, to the amazing restuarants you can find almost anything to enjoy while you relax and people watch. Amazing food and people watching isn’t the only thing to enjoy at the Terminal. The arachitectures is inspiring, take for example the ceiling in the Main Concourse.
The mural of the stars, is one of Grand Central Terminal’s most famous features. Visitors will notice that the zodiac on the ceiling is depicted backwards. Some have speculated that this was a mistake by the artist, Paul Helleu. To official documents indicated that the painter was inspired by a medieval manuscript that showed the heavens as they would have been seen from outside the celestial sphere.
This photo was taken with a fisheye lens, the only one that allowed me to get the whole ceiling in one frame.
