New Paltz Doors

The Huguenot settlement in New Paltz was founded in 1677 on land purchased from the Munsee. Here’s a bit of native American history in the region.

For Norm’s Thursday Doors.

French Church

I created a dark and moody version of the French Church in the Huguenot settlement founded in 1678 in New Paltz, New York for Halloween. I added spider webs and lightning.

Wood Siding

A couple of old houses

The late 18 c. or early 19th 121 Charles Street (link: brick underground.com) has a fascinating history. GVHS also has an excellent write-up on 121 Charles Street.

Ac cross the street from 121 is a building with a huge roof garden. I love how it spills over the walls.

132 Charles Street was built in the 1899. Both these old houses have wooden sidings, as do a only a few others in Greenwich Village.

Riverside Doors

Riverside Drive in New York City is full of elegant turn of the century mansions and doors. Here are three. The Hendrik Hudson, River Mansion and The Buddhist Church doesn’t have a very nice building, but I like the statue.
