Princely Doors

On the corner of Prince and MacDougal Streets is 205 Prince Street. Next door is o a Greek Revival/Federal building on land once owned by Aron Burr. I haven’t tried the little French bistro, The Little Prince. I plan to do so soon. Many years ago there were several French restaurants there and they celebrated Bastille Day with food, wine and boules in the street. This year one Bastille Day street fair will be on July 14 on West 60th Street.

Riverside

Doors on Riverside Drive, Manhattan and a lamp over a door on West 81st Street by the American Museum of Natural History.

Cloisters Doors

The Met Cloisters is at the northern end of Manhattan in Fort Tryon Park at 99 Margaret Corbin Drive and is run by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

When I was an Urban Park Ranger many years ago I reenacted Maggie Corbin’s story in the revolutionary war. Read the story on Wikipedia.
