What a magical, romantic place Grand Central Station is. It is nothing like its smelly, rundown counterpart that is the delightful Penn Station (which I have the pleasure of arriving into every time I take the train up from DC). Common in many films and tv shows as the glamorous backdrop to dramatic goodbyes and emotional arrivals (ala Gossip Girl), I was surprised to find that the historic train station was actually more lovely in person.
I also kind of loved the fact that it's basically smack in the middle of Park Avenue. It truly is grand when you look down the avenue and see this beautiful station at the end of it. Not a common sight in the big city, but quite enchanting nonetheless.
Sidenote: Have I told you how much I LOVE trains?! Since I've become more anxious as I've grown older about flying (which makes no sense), I prefer the train method above all, plus it's so easy to travel around the Northeast this way. I would literally take them everywhere if I could. LITERALLY.
Do you like to travel by trains?
