Window Views and doors too!

A bright beautiful day in the Bronx, N.Y.

This apartment building is located on East Gun Hill Road and Putnam Place.

East Gun Hill Road is dominated by large apartment buildings on the north side of the street, and on the south side, by the Montefiore Hospital complex, established in 1913.

The architectural details tell me the architects took great pride in building these utilitarian apartment buildings years ago.

Window Views and doors too

Young Walt Whitman Singing
Alexander Calder, c. 1935

Plaster model submitted by Alexander Calder to a competition held in New York City.

The sculpture is placed in front of the window of the Walt Whitman birthplace on Long Island. The window has the impression of a very well-known daguerreotype of the young Walt Whitman in carpenter's garb which was used for the first edition of "Leaves of Grass."

I added a little texture to my photo...

Our thoughts go out to the Haitian people and the devastating earthquake that hit their country yesterday. Help is on the way according to President Obama.

Window Views and doors too #38

This attractive house and winner of the Queensmark Award in College Point, N.Y. has always impressed me because of the splendid architectural details, particularly the windows. The upper floors sit at wonderful and eye-catching angles to each other.

I added a touch of texture to enhance the sharpness of the photos. It was a dull, overcast day when I took the shots.

Visiting others who participate in the Window Views meme is an act of kindness. :)
