Lamp with a glow in the snow. The last of this series of my March 2nd outing.
I went to Brooklyn to visit Grace Court and Grace Court Alley. Most of these are good for
There a few gas lights too. Reminded me of London in the 50s when a lamplighter used come light the lamp outside my window every night.
Grace Court Alley
Two lamps on Horatio Street, NYC from my lamp photo collection.
I created a Lamp category https://port4u.net/category/challenges/lamps/
Doors on Riverside Drive, Manhattan and a lamp over a door on West 81st Street by the American Museum of Natural History.
Upper East Side, 74th and 79th Street doors. Elenore Roosevelt lived in one of these.
A couple more of Manhattan’s classic, exclusive, Upper East Side doors.
I had a request from a fellow blogger to show the home of E. E. Cummings (1894-1962). The charming alley he lived in is called Patchin Place next to Jefferson Market Library.
The property that became Patchin Place and Milligan Place was once part of a farm belonging to Sir Peter Warren. In 1799 it was sold to Samuel Milligan, who later conveyed it to his son-in-law, Aaron Patchin. The buildings that now occupy the site were put up in 1848-1852 as boarding houses for Basque waiters and other workers at the nearby Brevoort House hotel on 5th Avenue.
A story: The then modernist writer Djuna Barnes (1982-1982) moved into a room-and-a-half apartment at 5 Patchin Place in 1941. She became so reclusive that Cummings would occasionally check on her by shouting out his window “Are you still alive, Djuna?”.
The even more charming private Milligan Place around the corner on 6th Avenue.
I like the lamps too on these Greenwich Village doors on West 9th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue.
