  1. Yes, the wrought-iron of the gates is a thing of beauty. I remember that terrible day - I was chopping wood when I heard.

  3. Oh, thanks for showing us this, up close and personal. I love this building, and Jack Finney's book was wonderful.---Can you imagine he also wrote 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers?' The film scared the pants off of me when I was little.

  8. that is a picture I would have had we made the trek into NYC... my son is the biggest John Lennon fan and all he wanted was a shot of the Imagine and the Dakota... cry. Yes it has been almost a month and I am STILL CRYING.

  9. I love the Dakota and those gates. I once met Alistair MacClean there and was "wowed" by his charm.

    Love your new header Daryl!

  10. I totally forgot about Jack Finney's books. I thought the book was great and should go back and reread. I have to scout around in my keeper books because I know I kept those books. Husband and I love to read any books that reference NYcity. The gates are beautiful and also represent such tragedy.

  11. Love, love, love the gates and the sconces. The door to my bedroom, in the home of my dreams, will have a gate instead of a conventional door. I like "out of the ordinary."

    I was 19 years old when John was gunned down by that madman. I remember vividly exactly where I was. I was in college. I was in the bathroom, and my classmate came in crying and said, "They killed him. Somebody shot John. He's dead. John Lennon is dead." My heart dropped. A sad day in musical history. A sad day, indeed.

    Mystery aside, beautiful shot of the gate, good choice for the meme.

  17. I'm thinking there is a third book in that series. It's no wonder the name sounded familiar. Neat gate.

  23. This is one exquisite gate - and how tempting is it to squeeze through the opening there and mosey around a bit?
