New York

The Grand Central Rebel


“It’s easy to stand with the crowd. It takes courage to stand alone.”

I was passing through Grand Central Terminal the other day and decided to indulge in a little main concourse look-see. It’s a spectacular room steeped in history, architectural wonder and some of the best people watching you’ll find anywhere in the City.  It’s much more than a commuter hub, it’s a destination all its own.

I planted myself on the balcony in front of the Apple store and looked out over the action. It was 7:30am and rush hour was in full swing. The crowd moved in a swirl of controlled chaos, except for one man who stood perfectly still . But it was more than his stance that caught my eye.  In a throng of suits and ties, briefcases and Manolo Blahniks, stood a sleeveless, faux hawked, nose-ringed rebel.

I love New York.
