After hearing about this craft fair from two people, my sister and Dawn, I had to go myself. Grand Central Station has been featured in countless films. I’ve met many friends and family members over the years in front of its famous clock.
This is the train station I took from Connecticut into New York when my mother brought us to the ballet and to visit Aunt Sylvia. Living in New Jersey the past 25 years, I come into Penn Station, which is convenient to the west side but holds none of the grandeur.
And this craft fair, really more a display of art, adds to the station’s appeal. Of course, I was drawn to the textile exhibitors, anything knitted or crocheted like these hats and stuffed animals made from recycled sweaters. I also loved these colorful pepper mills. And if your infant gets lost, here’s a handy NYC subway map:
The fair is open through Dec. 24 if you’re in the area and need last minute gifts.
