Posts Tagged ‘Grand Central Station’

I’ve posted about all this before… all the winter city fun like the miniature trains at Grand Central Station (this year with a mural of Maira Kalman’s characters) – and the ice skating rink at Bryant Park. It was a weekend day when Zoe was taken to dance downtown with her dad, so Ezra and I had some much needed and sorely missed one-on-one time. He was – as always – my favorite little man to hang out with.

this time I was able to take him through the hallways behind this colored glass!

Hey did you know that today marks the 100th year of Grand Central Station‘s existence? A mom-friend sent this email — outlining lots of great bargains going on there today:

“February 1 is the centennial celebration of the opening of the glorious Grand Central Terminal in New York. The city has lots planned for the big day (and year) including some Crazy Eddie-style deals. Bargain hunters who don’t mind insane crowds take note, Grand Central shops and restaurants are rolling back to some 1913 prices! Train fares will still cost the same.

Clams for pennies, pounds of pasta for a nickel, gelato for a dime, pieces of fudge for a quarter—these are some serious deals. But you’ll want to make sure to hit certain spots at just the right time as not all of them are all day. Here’s the breakdown of the one-day-only pricing rollback:
1913 PRICING FROM GRAND CENTRAL SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS
