Five Favorite Springtime Photos

With Spring finally upon us, I have picked out my five favorite images from the season so far. Some of these images are indicative of the transformation of the seasons, showcasing the first signs of this year's gradual shift from Winter to Spring. Enjoy!

Grand Central Terminal Celebrates its 100th Birthday

Friday marked the 100th anniversary of the opening of the magnificent Grand Central Terminal in New York City. As a commuter, I travel to and from Grand Central twice a day during the week and I must admit that I take the splendid sprawling structure for granted a great deal of the time. As I hurry past to catch the next train, I regard the tourists wandering around or staring open mouthed at the magnificent ceiling with annoyance, viewing them as an obstacle constantly threatening to impede my progress. Perhaps this is a little bit of the New Yorker attitude settling in, but when I take a moment to reflect, I can certainly understand why people visiting GCT for the first time are so awe struck by it. As a homage to the great building, I have put together a slideshow out of the compilation of images created by Alan Taylor in his In Focus photo article, Grand Central Terminal Turns 100. The slideshow is comprised of memorable photos taken of Grand Central since it was first built. Enjoy.

Remembering the fallen in Newtown 

Here at NYIP we feel that we would be remiss in ringing in the New Year without mentioning the unspeakable tragedy that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14th or paying tribute to the 6 adults and 20 children who lost their lives in the massacre. Rest in Peace, and may we all provide comfort for the families of the victims and the entire Newtown community, which grieves during this holiday season.

Five Flavors of Fall

Fall is very much upon us, and what better way to celebrate it than to look at some of the fantastic pictures taken around the world over the past two months. I have chosen my five favorites from an assortment of sources that include Associated Press, Getty Images, Reuters. To see more great images, go to The Big Picture photo article, Autumn 2012: Celebration of the season or the In Focus photo article, Fall Is in the Air. Enjoy.
