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.

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!

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!!

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.

The only type of it’s kind, or I should nothing similar nearby.. this one apparently escaped the bulldozer… a survivor!! It’s on 9th Street in Park Slope.
Bit of a closeup on this very detailed building
Music lives here now…

The above door belongs to this house.
An apartment building entry
This one too
Tis building has housed many different types of business. Even a house of worship. Now it looks to be a medical practice. Next is a look at it’s neighbor.
It looks to be more detailed. it’s been sitting like this for years. And there was always a porch light on which gave me hope. That new (green) fencing means someone has plans for it. I wonder if the new owner has an old soul. Time will tell.
Here’s a bit of a closeup.

This one is on Ocean Parkway. The details here are stunning for a brick house.
A bit of a closeup on the previous one
I never could get a proper shot of this one in Park Slope… love the colors!
Love the bricks! I guess this week is bricksville🙂

Except for this beauty!

I tried to get fuller shots of the last two but it was under the protection of a huge tree. The details are beautiful. I wonder how much was preserved on the inside.
