Window Views #14

Posted by Picasa

the Valentine-Varian House at Bainbridge Avenue and Reservoir Oval, which is the home of the Bronx County Historical Society. Built by Isaac Valentine in 1758. Isaac Varian, who grew up in this house, became NYC mayor in 1839. It was the site of six skirmishes between British and American troops during the Revolutionary War.

Eighteenth century field stone house with evenly set rectacular windows with black shutters right in the heart of the Bronx.

So join us, and look around at other Window Views and sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment.

Oh Whew! Goodness!

The highly decorated window above the Roslyn Bank, Roslyn, N.Y.

A cottage window with half moon window above.

These two windows were found within a quarter of a mile of each other.

Glad I got to post for Window Views.

Window Views #12

I visited St. Michael's Cemetery in Astoria this week. And found some windows as well as Cemetery statuary that I liked. Take a look at the two shots below:

St. Michael's Cemetery is situated in the borough of Queens in New York City. Established in 1852, St. Michael's is one of the oldest religious, nonprofit cemeteries in the New York City metropolitan area which is open to people of all faiths. It is owned and operated by St. Michael's Church, an Episcopal congregation located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

This building is at the entrace to the cemetery and it looks abandoned. It was probably the office for making inquiries.

So now Sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment.

And visit your fellow participants!

Window Views #11

Welcome to Window Views this week! I have a few photos of windows around New York City. I was in the city to meet up with Jan and Bob Prytz a month or so ago, so while we were driving over to pick them up, I took the following random shots:

tenement housing

church window

office window
