Thursday Doors – Around Brooklyn

This is a brownstone in Park Slope. I wonder if the owner did that themselves. Can you imagine living here as a kid. Must be like living in a story book🙂

Another shot.

Built in 1876..A Reformed Church. A small church. I’ve never been inside, pass it all the time. I read there is an interesting organ in there.

Venetian Condominiums

A building I passed by in Sheepshead Bay, I think. Had to Google it for the name. Very different!

Thursday Doors – Around Brooklyn

This is my favorite this week. The details on this I’ve never noticed before.
Looks like it needs a little love but is a beauty just the same
Love the round look of this one. Windows everywhere. The light inside must be awesome.
I like this even though I’m not a fan of brown.
Feels like a castle. It’s been there for a while, this one. The Imperial Apartments on Bedford Avenue were built in 1892

This the elevator door to SUNY Optometry, University Eye Center on 42nd St in Manhattan.
These last two are on 42nd St also, next to Cipriani (a fancy restaurant) . Don’t know what this building, is but look at the details!!

Thursday Doors- Around Brooklyn +

This is on E52…in Manhattan. On the other side of the street is St Patrick’s Cathedral.

Actually pulled over and got out of the car for this one. This is near downtown Brooklyn
A closeup of that church door

This was on Chambers St across from the Court House just off the Brooklyn Bridge. The were doing some work in there

I forgot where I took this one. Such details! …… I went on a big dig and found out just where I took this photo. It is the door of Williamsburg Savings Bank. A shot of the building is next.
Fancy, right!!!

I run across all kinds of interesting things in my morning walks. This was definitely one of them. It was in a space where a garage ought to be. This baby is going nowhere! Of course, when I saw the vent in top my mind went to mmmm.. this could be converted to a studio apartment!
Love this blue.
I’m pretty sure I used this one before. This is the entrance to a yatch club.. or a place for storing boats.
Love the wood and the details here, no paint.
The above door belonged to this building. I used to live in one of those. A nicely curved alcovel off the living room. For us older kids, it was the ‘boyfriend room’. Until mom caught on, that is!
This one has its own personality I think, Even though it’s snuggled up to a monster building on the right
This is such a cutie, it stood vacant and boarded up for a good long time. The right person finally got ahold of it and put a nice face on it. Tiny, but workable!
Love the idea of the window boxes and this rooftop outdoor space. I would be out there at all hours of the night, star gazing🙂

That’s all for this week.

Flower of The Day

On my walk a few days ago I saw this on a sidewalk. It looked recent, but it wasn’t. This is an image with deep grooves. It looks like someone had taken the time to do this while the concrete was still wet. Usually, when I see these, it amounts to a stained imprint. This wasn’t that.

there it was
