Rue Montorgueil, at Oh Happy Day.

the Ugly Green Chair: Grand Central Station of the past A photo from before buildings were built that shaded it and prevented the sun from shining in the huge windows like this. Wow. Also, while I was in New York (way back) Grand Central Station was being cleaned and was largely closed off so I must remember to revisit it to see it in all it’s glory.

Lifelist: Go Scuba diving? Check. | Mighty Girl. This inspires me to learn scuba diving, and it’s a good recommendation for a resort.

    grand central is GLORIOUS now (tho the light doesn’t stream all over like that pic, true). but it does come in the big end windows, and the ceiling is clean and a gorgeous blue and it’s really hard not to act like a tourist and stare at it!

    Saw this post come up on my RSS and had to comment.
    DEFINITELY try scuba diving! I live in Minnesota, and I’ve logged over half of my dives without having to drive more than 4 hours to a dive site. It’s so fun – and you can go in lakes or the ocean or even drift diving in the Puget Sound if the mood strikes. (I’ve got friends who live in Washington state.)
    Totally worth going, even if it’s only once.

    This might get me to finally try scuba, too. Usually, I cheat by watching where the scuba-ers are looking at something interesting, and I snorkel over to check it out from above.

    I HIGHLY recommend scuba diving! I just became a divemaster (the first professional level). I have done half of my logged dives in a small quarry the dive shop I dive through leases. You can dive anywhere! It’s so much fun!

    Scuba diving is pretty much the awesomest thing ever. I just got my open water certification at seattle scuba, and it was life-changingly spectacular. Those folks are so patient! I can’t drive over the viaduct without thinking about all the stuff i saw underwater RIGHT IN ELLIOT BAY. I just got back from diving at costa rica, and being trained in seattle meant that i was way more prepared than everyone else. Yay scuba!!
