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.
A church in Park Slope. This photo is looking more lively than usual. Thanks to my new phone compliments of my daughter. I’m still trying to figure it ot.
Entrance to an apartment building that has been spruced up. Looks like even the inside of thr lobby has had a turn. This is as a result of all of Brooklyn becoming the new high rent district. It was not this perky looking before, I would’ve noticed.
The cool thing about this door is that it’s on the side of an apartment building. It’s the entrance to a doctor’s office. The front is the usual modern monstrosity, but it looks like they kept the original here!!
