Highly photographed area, but thought I would try for some slightly different shots!

Very nice work!

In the first, while your subject was the Grand Central Terminal Building, my eyes were immediately drawn to the Chrysler Building. Regardless, I like the framing of the lighting on the GCT building.

In the second, I love the texture of the outside of the building. If you don't mind the comment, I might have cropped it to lose the sky in the upper right corner, though I'd leave everything else alone. (The office lights in a few of the windows work in this photo.)

The third is cool.

B&W works very well in the last photo. The long exposure is very cool. The lighting is perfect.

It's always difficult to shoot icons and make them interesting and different. I think you did well. :D

Thanks for the in depth comments, I really appreciate it!

I did debate for a while on how to crop the texture on the building....I'll give your comment a try. (I was afraid that it might be too abstract with only windows in the photograph.)

i like the B&W inside-terminal shot. The long exposure works great to show the hustle and bustle of GC.
