For the bulk of the photos he had joined the Landmarks Conservancy’s tour of the Hearst Building at 57th Street and Eighth Avenue yesterday, Dec. 13th.

the original building was designed

At the MTA Transit Museum in Grand Central Terminal
Steve found a model train of the very terminal
where the train set was standing.
Steve writes: “You may ask why I took this photo.”
“If you thought it was because of the style of the shoe,
that’s only half of it.”
“Check out the right foot.”
