NYC - Part 2

This is the outside of Grand Central; you can see the big arched windows that are so well-known from the inside. Light is reflecting off a nearby building.
Did you know that taxi cabs have tv screens now? The left hand side of the screen has a map of the city with a little red "You Are Here" marker that moves as you ride along. You can push a button for News, Weather, etc. They also accept credit cards (see the thingy above and to the left of the tv screen). I guess you can close the sliding window between the front and back seats if you want to have a private conversation.
I thought it was interesting to see the Manhattan version of Staples.
Visitors take photos from these open-air sight-seeing busses. Little do they know that the locals are taking their picture!

It seems everyone had a camera Saturday!
