Decker Building door

The Decker Building—periodically referred to as the Union Building—is located at 33 Union Square West in Manhattan, New York City. Built in 1892 for the Decker Brothers piano company according to designs by the radical anarchist architect John H. Edelmann, it replaced the earlier Decker Building on the same lot, designed by Leopold Eidlitz and built in 1869.

Andy Warhol had his Factory on the sixth floor of this building from 1968 through 1973. It is also where Valerie Solanas shot Warhol and art critic and curator Mario Amaya in 1968 (Souce: Wikipedia).

I love the ornate facade of this building. The doors are almost hidden. For Norm’s Thursday Doors February 16, 2017

High Line Thaw

It is now suddenly very warm in New York City. Some early spring flowers include Witch Hazel and Pussy Willow. Crocii were in the lawn but off limits for photography.

Concord Street Door

Lots of red in this cute little house in Brooklyn, New York. A red door, red shutters and trim and a tiny old red electric car. Photographed by Marc Felix.
