Thursday Doors – Around Brooklyn

Seems I have a few gray houses this week
This one is in Brooklyn Heights on Montague St. Even with the fire escape running down the front it still a nice looking building. It is called
The Arlington.
Year completed: 1887
Architect: Montrose W. Morris
Floors: 10
Style: Romanesque Revival
New York City Landmark: 1965
National Register of Historic Places: 1962
Also Brooklyn Hts. A couple leftovers from last week.

This one too. They were doing some work on this one. I love the arch behind that first door

Closeup if details inside St Anns Church
This one too
This is a side door of the church
These last four are closeups from inside St Anns Church. They were so nice. I asked permission to go in and take pictures. They said, sure! Even turned on the lights so I would get better shots!

Always loved the look of this house

  1. These are marvelous doors, Pat. I love fire escapes, so I think the The Arlington is wonderful. I love the color of that stone. The house at the top, with the large porch is also very nice. They all are nice. Picking a favorite comes down to thinking about where I’d be comfortable. I like the porch. I also like the gray house above The Arlington. I like the way the arch at the entrance is duplicated above in the attic window. Thanks fo sharing this great collection.

    • Thank you Dan. Glad you enjoyed it. Usually when I think fire escape I think clutter. You’d be surprised what some folks do on their fire escape.. hanging laundry, mini barbecue…crazy, I know. But this one is not in that category. I love the porch too. I’ve seen a modern day porch that was actually a daybed swing from 4 chains. That thing was the size of a full size bed. Been having dreams about one every since. And I just saw what you meant about the arch๐Ÿ™‚.

      • I remember some fire escape images Norm shared when he was hosting Thursday Doors. He had one photo from underneath that I thought was wonderful. I think itโ€™s like anything else, if you work to make it part of the building, it looks OK. A daybed swing? I might never get up. I hope you have a nice weekend.

    • Thanks! You’re right, they’re probably from the same time. That’s Brooklyn for ya! One moment you’re getting the feel of a small town and the next the senses are in disarray from all the traffic noise and people. Thanks for stopping by๐Ÿ™‚

      • That is a unique combination of old and big city. Some day Iโ€™ll make it out far to visit. My town is just old and sleepy. I like it that wayโ€”I can get my city feel in any of the other busy SoCal cities whenever I want (but most donโ€™t have this neat historical architecture).
