According to what I am hearing, it was 100 years ago today that Grand Central Terminal first opened its doors to the general public an with that being the case I wanted to post a couple of photos that I have taken to raise a glass.
Huzzah, kudos and congratulations to The Statue Of Liberty who today is one-hundred twenty five years of age. Yep, it was that long ago when the massive statue was dedicated to the United States from France and it has been both inspiring and a constant point of interest in the tourists minds. I have to admit that I kind of like to see it up close myself. The photo below is by no means the real deal statue but instead appears to be a giant desk decoration that I happened upon while wandering our fair Metropolis. Since I did not have any recent photos of the statue or scans of older photography, I opted to snap this one quick to be able to properly offer up some well wishes.
I realize that 125 years is a great milestone and that means some special events and speeches will be par for the course for the great statue. It makes me all the more excited for when she hits 150 years. Don’t worry, as before that day comes I will try to get some more recent images for blogging purposes and for your enjoyment. Happy Birthday once again Lady Liberty.
