Grand Central Terminal is not only one of the main bus/train/subway hubs for New York City, it is one of the most iconic buildings in Manhattan, being both beautifully built and wonderfully maintained. It is also always, always busy. When you get there, be sure to check out the chocolate malts at the Shake Shack. 🙂
This is the second of two posts relating to a day spent taking pictures in New York City. The first post is here.
Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest spouse Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photos selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
This next photo was taken in Washington Square, a large park that lies between New York University and Greenwich Village. Someone had kindly taken the time to write out the first Amendment to the American Constitution on the walkway. It’s that sort of place…

The second obligatory selfie from that day:
Note the snake skin banjo head!
A new way to see the city, rentable bicycles:
