Grand Central Station, New York City, 1929


"The sun can't shine through like that now due to the surrounding tall buildings."

Although the light may have been blocked for decades, I could swear that in "The Fisher King" there was a scene in Grand Central Station where the light streamed in from those windows. Lighting director, maybe?

A cathedral to travel by train.

Imagine you as a child arriving at such a grand place with all the bustling activity

and the lighting being this dramatic, it must have been something, mostly magical!

And it can't filter through all the cigarette smoke that clogged the station like a chimney either, I'm guessing?
