When we decided that we'd be leaving London and moving to NYC, in between planning a move across the ocean, organizing a wedding, sorting out visas, and trying to carry on with normal life as much as possible, I also found time to rewatch the entire of Gossip Girl.
Although I am living far, far away from the Upper East Side, and my life does not ressemble that of Queen S or Queen B in any way shape or form, I couldn't resist standing in the middle of the central concourse at Grand Central Station, hoping that SVDW would show up and the whole show could start again.
Well, S didn't make an appearance, but Grand Central was just as spectacular without her there. A never ending rush of people scurry past, bags trailing after them, weaving in and out of the people staring at the boards of train times, and barging through the tourists standing in the way with their cameras out (Yes, I'm guilty of belonging to that group. But I live here, so can I lose the tourist label now?).
With its glistening marble and stunning chandeliers this train station is magnificent, and exhausting. The perfect place for people watching, even if the Gossip Girl cast don't turn up.
Grand Central Terminal, 89 E 42nd Street, New York, NY 10017
