5th Avenue Doors

There are plenty of lovely doors on the famous 5th Avenue shopping area in Manhattan.

Here are 3 for Thursday Doors 8/18/2002 https://nofacilities.com/2022/09/15/the-road-to-preston/

Gay Street Doors

The Petite Boucherie, a French bistro, is on the corner of a charming little alley called Gay Street and Christopher Street. It is not far from Sheridan Square in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, New York City. I like to dine there occasionally. I was going to eat lunch there recently with Marc but it was too hot. They had opened all the windows wide to the outside. I’ll eat there again when the weather is cooler. For Thursday Doors 9/8/2022 https://nofacilities.com/2022/09/08/clay-hill-leftovers/.

Ivy House

I often see people taking photographs of the ivy-covered building. The middle door is in that building and the last door is labeled “Beau Geste” on Greenwich Street a few doors away. Beau Geste is an adventure novel by British writer P. C. Wren. For Thursday doors 9/1/2022 https://nofacilities.com/2022/09/01/more-from-clay-hill/.

Arthur Avenue Door

When we visit the New York Botanical Gardens I like to eat a late lunch at Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. It is an Italian district with many restaurants and stores. I buy bread, cheeses and meats to take home. This old door is is in the interior of one of the restaurants there. We ate there in April of 2022. For Thursday Doors 8/25/2022.

Jamaica Bay Shorebird Fest

The 17th Annual Shorebird Festival at Jamaica Bay took place on August 13, 2022. It was nice to see many old friends at there. The weather couldn’t have been better. Not too hot and with a brisk breeze at the East Pond to drive away the mosquitos.

Hudson River Park at Night

The garage at Pier 40 where we keep our car little VW Jetta is 0.95 miles south of our home. It is usually a pleasant walk along Hudson River Park to home from there.

Floyd Bennett Field Sunset

We stopped briefly at Floyd Bennett Field, in Brooklyn so I could photograph the sunset.

Southampton

We went to check out the the new stone for our plots that I purchased. The black granite looks good. Our plots are in Southampton Cemetery, Long Island, New York look and looks nice in the shade of a tree by Henry Road. We plan to have green burials when the time comes. After that we drove to the North Fork of Long Island and ate lunch at the charming little town of Greenport. After lunch we took two ferries to and from Shelter Island and drove back towards home to Manhattan via the South Fork. While visiting the Elizabeth Morton NWR I was not happy to see that during the last couple of years people have taking it upon themselves to hand feed the wildlife. It is not natural for them to eat strange foods and could harm them. Many birds, including the turkeys came up to us expecting food. People don’t feed the Ospreys. The young are almost fledged and the parents were calling to them to fly off the nest.
