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.
