More NYC Holiday Magic–Grand Central Light Show

Today I’m showcasing Grand Central Terminal (as it is officially called)’s Holiday light show, featuring projections set to music cascading over the walls and ceiling of the main concourse (you know…what Grand Central is famous for).

I’d hardly call the Holiday season cheerful or magical. However, this being my first Holiday […]
