Opened in 1871, Grand Central Terminal (Grand Central Station as it more familiarly known) is the largest train station in the world by number of platforms. There are 67 tracks and 21.6 million visitors pass through it every year. It is the kind of place that immediately serves as a metaphor for the afterlife, or the spirals of reincarnation, as judgement is passed and the souls of the departed are spirited away to their various punishments and rewards. One can only imagination the level of bureaucracy such an endeavor would require. And let’s not forget that two people had to have sex to produce each of the ghostly figures you see before you. Over the timeline of the stations nearly 150-year time line; that’s a lot of sex. And of course that’s a lot of death too – from scarlet fever, or pistol-whipping, or falling on patches of ice, or from any number of the other virtually limitless ways life is bound to get you.
