Wow..this place is as busy as Grand Central Station! Oh…. Now I know where the saying comes from. There were plenty of people bustling around and also plenty of tourists taking in the beautiful architecture. Be sure to look up at the gorgeous ceiling in the main concourse. The painting depicts the winter zodiac and features 2,500 stars painted in gold leaf. The chandeliers are also works of art. Apparently they were thought to be bronze and it wasn’t until renovation that the cleaning revealed they are actually gold plated.
