An Armory that is now serving as a men’s homeless shelter.

A side door to a school in Manhattan

This is also from the same school. I think it’s a church attached to a school

Honestly, I don’t remember where I took this one. It might have been downtown Brooklyn. Clearly a building with a previous life, like most, I suppose.

This is on the side of a huge apartment building .still trying to figure out  where it leads.

For Norm’s Thursday Doors

This is the Montauk Club from my door-xursion today. I have yet to drive by this place without gauking at the architecture. And the doors.  It was founded in 1889 and has remained a private club since its founding. The magnificent Club House was designed by the famed New York architect Francis H. Kimball, who was inspired by a palace on Venice’s Grand Canal. The Club House was completed in 1891 and its Venetian gothic architecture, carved mahogany woodwork and beautiful stained glass windows remain its signature features.

Stuff happens here too, so one day soon I’ll get to see what the inside looks like.

Couldn’t quite figure out the address on this one. Around the corner from this is commercial space. Love the details here.

Below this is a store front. This is on Flatbush Ave. Looks like it’s biding it’s time to renovation. More likely sooner than later, hope they keep the details.

This is also on Flatbush Ave. Looks like it  used to be a bank.

 

This building too used to be a bank, the Williamsburg Savings Bank building  It’s at 1 Hanson Place. Now there are condos. The lowest priced one is over 1.5 million. I remember the decor in the lobby being really special, from the floors on up, when there was still a bank in the lobby. This building has been around since 1875.
