I love this door. It’s not an old door. It’s a new door imitating an old one. It caught my attention while I was driving, so I pulled over to photograph it. There was a gate and I was trying not get the rails in the shot. And out came a young man who asked me if I wanted to come in. We talked about his door. He proudly stated that his door was influenced by his grandmother. He loved the old look of it. Another thing that made it truly stand out was that it was in an area that couldn’t be more congested. A gem!

I have only one door today. And it’s not so much about the door but it’s surround. I wonder what the original door looked like…This was taken in the Bronx, New York City.

Thursday Doors – September 7, 2017
Entrance to a doctor’s office in an apartment building on Grand Army Plaza.
Below is a closeup.
This used to be a church. It has a new life as condos.
Entrance to a High School, multiple schools, in Park Slope.

This is a fire engine company door. It was hard to day if it was still active because it was tucked in to such a tight space. Plus, there was no yellow paint on the street in front so it probably isn’t. The work in black on the door was scrolled on and it’s raised. Very striking!

New York Yacht Club on West 44th St in Manhattan ..this is a window.
These are in Park Slope, Brooklyn. This is more about the surround of the doors than the actual doors. Striking I think.

Entry to the New York Public Library on 42nd St in Manhattan. Too many people so I couldn’t get a clear shot of the door. So I settled for a closeup shot of the outer door with all its details below.
This one is in a regentrified neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn. Now only folks with money can afford houses there. The door is new, the area above it isn’t.

Lived another life. Now it has been regentrified..note the air condition unit up top.
No doors here, just an open invitation to sit. This is at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens- donated by a daughter in honor of her parents. I love the inscription!
Love this plant box at the Botanic Gardens. It’s in the herb garden. With the top closed it becomes a starter box. It’s also very good looking.
Dismissal time outside a High School, all heads bowed and fingers flying:)
