I hope you are enjoying your three-day weekend. It has been unseasonably warm in the DC area, I’m talking 70 and it has been nice to enjoy the outside. After I’ve downed an allergy pill or two that is. I hope you had a chance to enjoy the weather in your neck of the woods. We had a full weekend.
Every time I take a trip I explore someplace new, while in New York this time I explored Grand Central. The correct name is Grand Central Terminal despite the fact, people still refer to it as Grand Central or Grand Central Station.
Grand Central Terminal opened in February 1913; it occupies 49 acres (42nd Street – 97th Street) and that includes 33 miles of track. It is the world’s largest train terminal with 45 track platforms and 63 tracks. During the height of the morning rush hour, trains platform there every 58 seconds.
Grand Central Terminal is the home of the world’s largest Tiffany Clock, it is 13-feet in diameter.

I didn’t know the terminal had 35 dining options and 68 shops. My favorite of them all was Terminal Market. This market had everything, for a moment I forgot I was in the Terminal or in New York City.
If I were a bit more domestic I would have purchased all kind spices. They smelled delicious.
You can get off the train, pick up some spices for dinner, desserts after dinner and flowers for your boo. Nothing but the best and the freshest flowers around.
While you’re at it pick up fresh bread, desserts and more. I had an amazing apple pie that would make you smack your mother.
Whatever you need they have, even the produce you’ve heard of but have never actually seen.
They had steak so big I don’t even know how you could eat it in one setting. I was able to take pie home, but it would have been nice to take one of these yummies home.
We were full on tourist, in the midst of people hustling and bustling around town. There is always time for a selfie. We had a lot of fun in the market so we decided to poke in a store. I don’t even know the name of the store and we didn’t purchase anything but we had fun acting like children.
Grand Central Terminal is filled with regular stores but we go into those all the time. I live for a store filled with quirky things and this was that store. While I wouldn’t purchase these hilarious pencil pouches for the kids The Style Medic and I enjoyed some laughs.
Some folks underestimate the power of hand washing and scurry about without cleansing their hands. This hand sanitizer is for you. I spend a large amount of time telling my kids to “stop touching stuff”.
Because I have the humor and sass of a 16-year-old girl. This was so cute and funny to me. This is a metaphor for life.
This book title will totally catch your eye, but did you notice the description? “Advice, Meditations, and wisdom for men who have too much” I bet you thought this book was about something else. Now the book on the right is totally about what you thought. We cackled while flipping the pages.
We also had a good laugh at this one.
There is still so much we didn’t get to take in. I will go back when I have more time and grab a meal and people watch a bit more. There is so much going on your head will stay on a swivel.
