For Norm’s Thursday Doors

This is the Montauk Club from my door-xursion today. I have yet to drive by this place without gauking at the architecture. And the doors.  It was founded in 1889 and has remained a private club since its founding. The magnificent Club House was designed by the famed New York architect Francis H. Kimball, who was inspired by a palace on Venice’s Grand Canal. The Club House was completed in 1891 and its Venetian gothic architecture, carved mahogany woodwork and beautiful stained glass windows remain its signature features.

Stuff happens here too, so one day soon I’ll get to see what the inside looks like.

  1. If the outside is this elegant, just think what the inside must be like. Can’t wait until you can get in and you have many more faces than I do this week, although I have an entire head, so maybe that counts more. 🙂
