This is the view from below one of the chandeliers in Grand Central Terminal. This particular chandelier is above the bridge that connects Vanderbilt Hall to the Main Concourse. There are a few lights in the chandelier directed toward the floor itself; those are the ones that are flaring in the photo. Also see the Grand Central Terminal Flickr group. There are more shots from this angle by other contributors, as well as some classic New York style photos of commuters at rush hour.
This is in response to the www.dailyshoot.com prompt #279: "Make a photograph from a high point of view. Get on top of a building, use a ladder, or just look down at a small object." The photos from everyone who responded to this prompt can be found at http://dailyshoot.com/assignments/279.
One of the hallways of the New York Public Library. I didn't take a picture of the main reading room, in observance of their 'no photos' sign. The main reading room is, however, one of my favorite places in New York City.
My brother Mike, at the Neptune Diner in Astoria. We ate here twice this weekend. This is not healthy.
I resisted the temptation to honk this.
