On the side of 88 Perry Street,
the old building at the corner of Bleecker in Greenwich Village,
there's an beautiful blue-and-white mosaic in the shape of the door.
In the center, it says "AÑO 1868."
The story goes that, when the building was renovated in 1972,
the owners commissioned Senior Rodrigues,
an artist from Seville,
to created a mural for a recessed part of the wall.
Since then, it's become a kind of a local landmark.
