  3. this actually looks inviting for a downstairs entrance. I find many of them dark & spooky but this looks bright and airy. Very nice.

  4. I love this photo. I was obsessed about a year ago taking photos of doors. They tell a story.

  5. I bet it stays rather cool down in those areas and that is where I would want to be!!

  6. I like the look. But I think it would be very strange to live behind bars.

  7. not very inviting, is it? I find it somewhat ominious.

  8. Another perfect remainder to me of why I love NYC; the similarity to Savannah's architecture.

  9. Elegant for a below the stairs entrance! As were the red tables yesterday, for which I could not find the words then!

  13. *sigh* More wrought iron. I so love wrought iron.

    When I was living in the UK and Gareth and I would head into London, I used to love to walk around the residential area that surrounds St. James Park. So many of the row houses have kitchen entrances similar to yours pictured and were always surrounded by wrought iron. A lot of the times there were the most intricate patterns. It used to fascinate me endlessly.

  14. Daryl, that reminds me, just a bit, of a bungalow we lived in years ago in the Parkside district in San Francisco. You entered through a wrought iron gate, walked into a little courtyard, and ascended stairs with a wrought iron railing, which curved around to the front door.

    The linearity of wrought iron creates wonderful photo opps, no?

  15. Something so lovely about kitchen entrances (done right, of course, like this one). We don't have them in our world. Bummer.

  16. Looks like a typical basement flat entrance one sees so many of here in London. Neat and secure.

  17. I imagine there must be so many different doors in NY!

    Here they all look pretty much like barn doors..... ;0)

  18. Is the kitchen in a row house usually below the street level? I am always drawn to pictures of windows and doors.

  19. Reminds me of my uncle's place on west 4th where I stayed the summer of '59. Worked up at the Grayhound bus terminal - telephone information clerk. I was a young, innocent lad from Indiana. Just a little older now...

  20. I'm such a fan of wrought iron. Great shot!

  21. Kind of reminds me of those scenes below decks in Titanic when the steerage passengers are trying to get to the main deck.
