This post is for Norm’s Thursday Doors, November 29, 2018.

A lovely local gallery on Fifth Avenue just above Washington Square Park is the Salmagundi Club which was founded in 1871. About the Salmagundi Club on Wikipedia.

A few doors south at 43 Fifth Avenue is this door.

“Once home to Marlon Brando and novelist Dawn Powell, 43 Fifth Avenue defines grandeur. Completed in 1905 and converted to cooperative in 1978, this 11-story Beaux Arts residence, with its dry moat, bay windows and wrought-iron balconies, is an elegant example of the stately pre-war apartment houses for which Lower Fifth Avenue is known. A grand entrance, framed by limestone lampposts, leads to an extraordinarily ornate marble lobby, attended by a 24-hour doorman. Its sizable homes, with their soaring, 10-1/2 foot ceilings, boast an eclectic variety of original details. 42 residences. (Source: https://streeteasy.com/building/43-5-avenue-new_york)”

    Enjoyed your photos of the Salmagundi building, Sherry, and the background and description were equally as enjoyable. Thank you.

    I like this glimpse of the old architecture of New York. It must be a very gracious city in some of the older areas.

    Love these stories where something small and insignificant to the public eye started, and became the opposite with time! Beautiful captures Sherry!
