A few weeks have gone by since my post “Building Code” about my small endeavor into the architecture of Manhattan. So below is a collection of images of new buildings, mainly from the East Side, that I thought were beautiful.
If you haven’t noticed already, I have a thing for doors, and I really always have. I remember going trick-or-treating in a Las Vegas suburb one year, where I was visiting my best friend, and at every massive carved wood door we came to, I gasped that I loved, needed, had to have it.
The first picture, of the light Robin’s Egg Blue door, is perfection on Elizabeth St. It is so whimsical and otherworldly, but at the same time completely modern.
