It’s Old Time Grand Central
A song there
Confusion in full gear
Tenement scene on the run
Minimum two dollars to handicap
Here! Slap mine too
It’s old time grand central ball

Each day that I make my trek through Grand Central Station, 42nd Street in New York, I cannot help but remind myself of the days when this landmark was far from what it is now, before its massive renovation. It is a melting pot; a city in itself where thousands of people filter in and out every day. Trains come in and out of this station and most of all it is a social meeting place for those on the run. To the younger people who have no idea what Grand Central Station was like before: here’s to you and others, a poem for the good old times.
