Jon Crispin's Notebook

Oyster Bar

Posted in Architecture, Art, Buildings, Cities, Food, History, Travel by joncrispin on 19/02/2012

Sorry, it’s been a while. /  I took the Metro North train from New Haven to New York on Friday.  I could have taken Amtrak from Springfield, but it goes into Penn Station and I prefer Grand Central.  I arranged to arrive with time to spare, so I had some Cotuits and a pan roast at the Oyster Bar. / Just after my Kickstarter page went up, Zoe Crossland from Columbia University contacted me about coming down to give a seminar on the Willard suitcases project.  She connected me with Brian Boyd who set it all up, and at 5.30 I was sitting in a room with a great group of faculty and students from the anthropology and archeology departments.  I was hoping for lots of feedback and dialogue and wasn’t disappointed.  I showed selected photos from what I have done so far and we had a great discussion. / Had a very productive day at the museum last Thursday and will be back shooting in the next few days.

    Wish I could have been there for the seminar. Any chance it was recorded for you tube?

    Grand Central Station is one of those buildings that resonates on every emotional level I have. It’s a building where there seems to be great stores of magic, even for those of us who know that magic is only in books.
