I went to Grand Central Station to take the normal wide angle image of the main concourse but ended up finding some really interesting details and angles in some of the side areas. This image was taken just inside the main entrance where a corridor down to a collection of restaurants gives a great view of the interesting ceiling and globe lights.
Grand Central was also the first place I was approached and told not to use a tripod. The police officer who passed on the information was very pleasant and courteous (more than can be said for the security folks outside the Rockefeller Center). For the benefit of others wanting to use a tripod, it turns out that if you walk into the Stationmaster’s Office just off the main concourse, he will happily phone someone in the Metropolitan Transit Authority and have you speak to them for 30 seconds before issuing you a ”Special Permit” sticker that allows you to use a tripod. After this you will only be approached by staff who don’t see your sticker when, for example, you are bending down to change lenses.
