GRAND CENTRAL STATION Glass Picture
Picture: overwhelming on any wall. This glass picture provides a view of the approximately 40-metre high station concourse of New York s Grand Central Terminal. Life and movement are underlined by the visually distorted perspective, contrasts and details, giving this picture its depth and individual charm. The frameless format and glass make the motif even more expressive. Almost 100 million passengers board a train at one of the 44 platforms every year. 22 million come as tourists, more visitors than the Great Wall of China. The giant railway station covers an area of 19 hectares, three times as much as Ground Zero. And, of course, there is the imposing lobby, whose 40-metre-high dome is decorated with exactly 2599 stars, 60 of which are illuminated. Grand Central Terminal is more than 100 years old and still the world s largest station.
