No Menus!
this sweet little doorway is on West 77th Street just before Columbus Avenue

  1. Oh - gorgeous. The light is perfect. The green archway of leaves provides a warm touch and curves to the rigid, symmetrical lines of the building, the door and the window pane.

    In short, as usual your photos talk to me.

  3. Lovely little doorway.

    We have a large hotel in Cape May that has no menus. You eat what you are served. And it's always wonderful.

  5. Okay color me dumb. I figured this was someone's house/apartment and they'd gotten tired of having the Chinese takeaway and pizza menus dropped in the mail slot. But now that I think of it, that'd be a pretty damn specific pet peeve.

    Of course, it is New Yawk. With that many folk, I suppose you can find a little of everything.

  7. You know I love a pretty door. No menus, no choice?? Hummm. Guess if the food is good that's not a problem. Bon weekend!

  9. Pretty funny. I know how they feel. Every other day I come home and find some new cheap Chinese restaurant from two towns over has had someone out stuffing their take-out menus into mail slots.

  10. I love doorways like that, and they seem unique to places like NYC and Boston as well as London...I used to go walking just outside St. James Park in London when I lived in the UK and the architecture is similar in places to that of NYC. Of course, I can't recall ever seeing one that had a sign on it saying "No Menus." I'm intrigued.

  17. Must be a restaurant of sorts...or was?

    Maybe you can recycle this shot for the Nov. 1 theme which is "doors"?

    Lovely photo, Daryl! Great color and lots of mystery!

  23. That is a sweet doorway. It looks happy and peaceful. But "no menus!"? That's a new one!

  24. "No menus" is different! Can you get this door to go with yesterday's window--I might move in!

  25. Okay, my mind is racing about all the different possibilities for *no menu*. Hehehehe....
