Summer – A Quadrille

20181031_1750493474119927777161115.jpg

Longing for sips of summer –

Ocean breeze infused with sunshine

Lazy days watching the sun set

Short life of foot prints in wet sand

Watching seaguls and sparrows
out run the edges of waves

Yes, I am longing for the first sip of summer.

Quadrille #74

Thursday Doors

Entrance to an apartment building, now condos. Built in 1912. Look at the details in that surround!

Also built in 1912. A 2 bedroom unit in here was $800,000 last year!

Built in 1924. It has 58 units, and is 6 storiestall. It looks like it’s still being revamped. These were all in Brooklyn, New York.

This one was in Lower Manhattan. Built in 1901. Just love the colors here.

Morning Light

fierce winds – mid winter
storm clouds rule the morning light,
until the snow falls

Couldn’t quite figure out the address on this one. Around the corner from this is commercial space. Love the details here.

Below this is a store front. This is on Flatbush Ave. Looks like it’s biding it’s time to renovation. More likely sooner than later, hope they keep the details.

This is also on Flatbush Ave. Looks like it  used to be a bank.

 

This building too used to be a bank, the Williamsburg Savings Bank building  It’s at 1 Hanson Place. Now there are condos. The lowest priced one is over 1.5 million. I remember the decor in the lobby being really special, from the floors on up, when there was still a bank in the lobby. This building has been around since 1875.

For Norm’s Thursday Doors, pop on over, take a look, even join in!
