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.

Engine Company 14 is a fine old firehouse on E 18th Street in the East Village area of Manhattan. The ornate Beaux Arts design firehouse was erected in 1895. It was designed by architect Napoleon LeBrun, who was known for his decoratively designed fire stations. This style is typical of the earliest New York City firehouses. Engine Co. 14 has been recognized as a historic landmark.

I met Marc, my husband, at The Art Students League in New York City. We both attended drawing classes there in 1966. The state sent him there because that’s what they thought he was suited for after testing his abilities. I wanted to be an artist. I had scraped up enough money to go there during the summer. my girlfriend Donna also came with me. While waiting for class in the hall I nudged her and said he’s cute let’s go talk to him. Marc invited us to come help him clean an apartment. That was my first date.

Skylands Manor is charming. I have not been able to see inside yet. It is often closed for private events.
