Brooklyn Heights Doors

Last week we were in Manhattan and decided to take a little walk.

We made our way from the east side of 40th Street south to the Brooklyn Bridge.

Soooooo, of course we had to walk across to Brooklyn.

After checking out the Promenade, we wandered through the streets of Brooklyn Heights.

Those stately brownstones have some pretty serious door-bragging-rights!

I couldn’t resist stopping to grab a few shots on my phone… to share with you.

After stopping for a delicious pizza & salad, we made our way to Dumbo for a quick explore before heading back across the Bridge and to our hotel.

It was a long, hot walk. Something like 23 kilometres in New York’s August heat.

And still, it was an exhilarating adventure! One of those bucket list kind of days.

    Phew, that was a long walk! Worth it thought for all the lovely doors and views.

    The first door is interesting with the surround painted the same color – very striking. Great collection of doors, and I really like the handsome window boxes and containers. ๐Ÿ™‚ 30,000 steps? OMG every joint and muscle in my body hurts just thinking about that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    New York will never let a door lover down – awesome collection. I’m not sure I’d even want to walk that much on such a hot day but I’m sure it was well worth it.

      It was fabulous! But my feet hurt for days. And days!

    Great collection. Love the short little houses. What street are they on?

      Thank you Sherry. I thought that street was just charming. It reminded me of a London Mews. Iโ€™m sorry I didnโ€™t record the name of it, so I canโ€™t answer your question.

        I found it with a Google search, it’s Grace Court Alley, Brooklyn. My have GPS coordinates and in Lightroom I can see in the map module where photos were taken. Please excuse me, but I used ot be a cartographer so location is an important detail for me.

        Thatโ€™s awesome, Sherry!!!

        p.s. You can also add coordinates by dragging the image onto the map module.

    Chapeau! 23km in the sticky heat of August in New York is no mean feat – we are also the winners, able to take joy in your wonderful door piccies and gaze on those fine brownstones and of course the graceful span of the bridge too.

      Itโ€™s so worth the walk. So many vibrant neighbourhoods! Iโ€™m so glad you enjoyed the little tour.
      And so happy to hear from you. ๐Ÿ˜ŠHope all is well.

        We owe NYC another visit (last there in 2016 with my youngest daughter … stayed in Hells Kitchen in the blistering heat with a broken leg – we definitely need to go again ๐Ÿ˜‰). I am well. I have been quietly setting back in New England and finding it difficult to find the muse but I keep promising myself that I really must encourage her back to my shoulder somehow ….

        Itโ€™s a sublime time of year to be in New England. Enjoy! Its not always necessary to be producing. Sometimes, the most important thing to do is just sit. Savour this. ๐Ÿ˜Š

        One of my favourite stories as a child was โ€˜Ferdinandโ€™ – the little bull who preferred to sit under the cork tree and smell the flowers whilst all the others raged around practicing to be the finest bull and taken off to Madrid to fight the Matador. I rest your case ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Ha!!! Right you are! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•
