Flower Of The Day

A Bitter-Berry tree in my yard, highly fragrant blooms. It keeps getting taller. I thought it was a bush! For years it had been dwarfed by another tree that is no longer. Now it is thriving.

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

Thursday Doors – Around Brooklyn

Entrance to an apartment building
The closeup to this is that one above.

I went walking in Brooklyn Heights. Didn’t stay as long as I’d hoped to because it was a chilly day. My favorite this week is #3 & #4.

This is the back side of these two buildings
And this is their view! ( Off the Brooklyn Heights Promenade..forgot to mention that earlier)
These last two is inside St Ann’s Church on Montague St. Well, some of it is on Montague
These two are of the outside

.These last four are inside/outside the now Chase Bank at 101 Court St. The Brooklyn Trust Company was it’s original name,  built in 1916. To read more on this go here.

I thought it might have been a mansion at another time.

Thursday Doors – Around Brooklyn

Full front view
Front facing, a little tighter
A little bit tighter still, I was hoping no one from the inside was watching me.
A facing front shot that is focusing on the side. A very handsome side!
A closeup of that tippy top from the above photo. Check out the window on that. There was more of that off the ground floor porch. I didn’t get a shot because I would have to go too close.
A view from the side. The owners must be used to people either just standing and stare, or taking pictures. This house is stunning!!

A lady was going by pushing a stroller with two kids so I did one of those ” pretending not to be gauking at this house” and she just started laughing. Then we started laughing. ” It’s for sale”, she said. “Wanna guess how much?”.

My guess was 7M…she said try 12. So of course I googled it. But it’s closer to 13M. To get a look at the inside see it here.
