Memories

Spent a total of 11 years commuting thru this shithole

It was worse than usual yesterday
The bad weather caused chaos at Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan early Tuesday evening.

Around 5:30 p.m., Metro-North announced on Twitter that service on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven Lines had been suspended and advised travelers to avoid the terminal.

New Jersey Transit was not faring any better.

More than an hour later, the terminal was still full of commuters, but none were moving. They stood cheek-to-jowl packed around the central clock underneath the vaulted ceiling and its constellation. No one went anywhere.

But won't it make a fantastic ruin some day?

Maybe along the way, someone will even consecrate it to a new religion.

You know. Like the Parthenon. :BigGrin3:

Tokyo station is pretty nice too. I've been commuting through there for over 16 years now.
