Grand Central to the North Pole

We're leaving Grand Central Station via the 18th Annual Holiday Train Show.

Grand Central Station isn't just a train station, it's a whole world. My optician is there, one of my favorite eating spots is there and the New York Transit Museum's Grand Central Gallery is the home of the Annual Holiday Train Show. If you're a model train fan -- and I am -- or even if you're kind of a Scrooge about model trains, this exhibition may just win your heart. 

There are New York City landmarks, there are cozy corners of the city and there are places to visit that exist only in our dreams. This wonderful show has them all. 

 This is a (mythical) cozy corner of New York on what may be the East River. Love the detail.

I doubt this cabin exists anywhere in the five boroughs, but we 
can definitely travel there on the Polar Express. All aboard!

The holiday greenery at Grand Central Station.
The station looks deceptively calm in this picture. 

I'm enjoying a quiet afternoon at home. Blogging, sipping coffee with amaretto creamer and figuring out my calendar for the next week. What's your schedule?

As ever, thanks for visiting and keep cozy!

Wow, this is amazing! My favorite is the gorgeous first picture. I had no idea about Grand Central, I thought it was only a huge train station. Wish I could go and walk through it.

My hubby would be beside himself at that exhibit! Amazing, the realism.
I've just finished making our 2020 calendar; hard to wrap my mind around that number!
