New York – The Grand Central Station

I am a fan of the movie “The Untouchables” and the shootout scene in the Union Station simply has to be seen to be believed. So, it is a must go … but since I didn’t spent much time in Chicago in previous visits, so instead, I went to New York’s Grand Central Station 😎

But what I found interesting was an exhibition in the station the day I visited. It was about advertising and women’s economic power … of course, the famous “Rosie the Riveter” poster was shown. Rosie the Riveter is a cultural icon of the United States, representing the six million women who worked in the manufacturing plants which produced material during World War II while the men (who traditionally performed this work) were off fighting the war. This “character” is now considered a feminist icon in the US. “We Can Do It !!”
