Grand Central Terminal, New York, United States

A time for movement

One of the world’s largest railway stations, this architectural gem is set in the heart of the most dynamic city in the Western world. Each day, millions of travellers pass through it in an uninterrupted choreography. This is where the heart of Manhattan pulses almost round the clock. For Vacheron Constantin, Steve McCurry’s team was able to re-discover this mythical location in the middle of the night with only a few discrete travellers. A true privilege.

Steve McCurry: “I remember the first time at Grand Central Station, in New York. I had the impression of being immersed in a work of art, not a railway station! What I find especially fascinating here is the constant human interaction. But it was fantastic to be able to spend a whole night there. We had the entire station to ourselves, as if in a waking dream."
