Grand Central Station

Grand Central

Happy Throwback Thursday. Here is a piece I did on Grand Central Station. Enjoy.

Grand Central Station is located on 42nd street between Lexington and Park Avenue. Grand Central is the hub for metro-north commuter lines of Westchester County and neighboring Connecticut. Approximately 130,000 commuters travel through Grand Central everyday. People, whether they are commuting or not, each day, come to the station to enjoy the restaurants, bars, and shops just like they would anywhere else. Grand Central is like a mini City inside of New York City. People can take walking tours inside the station and start at the information booth for guidance. There are also audio device tours for a small fee that will guide you through Grand Central as you go. The Station is most famous for the Great Astronomical mural on the Main Concourse, truly breathtaking. This is one of New York City’s most remarkable landmark and the most magnificent public places in the country, built between 1903 and 1913.

Grand Central Station is in the heart of Midtown located near 3 main attractions: Times Square, Empire State Building, and Rockefeller Center. Grand Central Terminal is full of interesting bars, shops, restaurants, and a food court. Location: 42nd street between Lexington and Park Avenue.

Hope For a Better World

Baby Foxes

Goodnight everyone. We hope that you enjoyed your day.

Tonight we pray together for a gentler world. It seems society has become desensitized to human and animal suffering. Every day the news is checkered with shockingly brutal events taking place all over the world. Man against man. Man destroying animals, destroying each other.

There is hope for a better world. We can make a difference, starting with ourselves, our children and our grandchildren. Talk to the youth. Do your best to instill compassion in them from the very start. Be an example of what you want them to be, and how you want them to treat all life. Have faith in knowing that the light will always extinguish the darkness. The more people extending goodness, the more our world will move away from its current course.

We can create a new generation, where kindness and tolerance is rewarded. Where fighting for the well being of those that can’t fight for themselves is a natural instinct. A generation that lives cruelty free towards any living thing. A world where we live together peacefully, and work together to better this earth that we all share.

This is what we pray for. Dear God hear our prayers.

No lives will go in vain. No pain will go unnoticed. Amen.

Love to all of you,
Jessica Lee Smith,
