This used to be the building of the Fire Department headquarters in Brooklyn. The old headquarters. It is six stories tall and was built in 1920. I couldn’t tell who or what lives there now. The details of this is so intricate.
I took these pictures today while on my search for the Board of Elections Office. Yes, I was in search of the drop box. My ballot made it there safely!
For Thursday Doors over at Norm’s. To see others or to participate go here.
Only a couple this week. I’ve been falling off on my door excursions lately. The door was rather plain compared to the surround. So detailed! This actually looked like there were apartments in here, as opposed to a private home. Truly eye catching. This was around Jerolomon St, downtown Brooklyn.
For Norm’s Thursday Doors. It’s the entrance of a school on Joralemon St downtown Brooklyn. The building has been around since 1845? Not sure if that’s referring to the building or the institution. But it sure looks like money. Gorgeous! You can read more about it here.
This used to be a bank (Williamsburg Bank), now condos.
The first photo is of a building that used to be the phone company building. It is now repurposed as condos. Very pricy condos.
Manhattan has moved across the Brooklyn Bridge into Downtown Brooklyn. And with it came the traffic. It used to take me 30 minutes from my neighborhood to the bridge. That now takes 90 minutes. Progress.
It got me thinking about these benches in the middle of the road on Flatbush Avenue, a very busy avenue. Traffic whizzing by on both sides of you while you are sitting there. Gives new meaning to the term ‘playing in traffic’.
Here is another view. I have never seen anyone sitting on any of these benches. I must give that a try one day.
