A tourist in New York city with photo camera. People. Grand Central Station. Versions

Uno de los múltiples lugares de visita obligada en Nueva York es la estación de tren Grand Central.
Es uno de esos escenarios de cine que todos deseamos ver para comprobar que, efectivamente, existe tal y como vimos en la película.


One of the splendors of Grand Central is that its vast, majestic spaces reveal extraordinary attention to  the smallest design detail.
The architects brought in Parisian artist Sylvain Saliéres to craft bronze and stone carvings, including ornamental inscriptions, decorative flourishes, and sculpted oak leaves and acorns (symbols of the Vanderbilt family), including playful carved acorns festooning the Main Waiting Room’s chandeliers.
The architects specified Tennessee marble for the floors, Botticino marble for wall trim, and imitation Caen stone for the walls. The Oyster Bar’s vaulted ceilings are adorned with a herringbone pattern of Guastavino tiles
