Man, is this a red door to nowhere or what? I just noticed this. That first step is a killer! This is the backside to an 'antique facility' in Bayside. I call it a junk shop! There was one of these places on Arbor Street in the old neighborhood. We guys always got a kick out of going in and walking the aisles, while picking around and admiring all the remnants of others' lives. The visitors, the stuff the smells: it was the total package. Our fun was short-lived however, because soon that building and a bunch of others were knocked down by the wrecking ball to make room for the new A&P Supermarket. For us at the Corner and for others around the city, it seemed to mark the end of the mom and pop neighborhood stores, the end of an era. RIP.

love the way you've been exploring the back-sides of things, birdman. and where is the a&p now?ReplyDelete
I love a good junk shop! I also love the flakiness of the brick wall in this shot.ReplyDelete
The first step out that red door would be a dangerous one...ReplyDelete
I see this frequently in old buildings, a doorway to the sky almost. I'm betting there once was a balcony.ReplyDelete
Ho! That's a great find, that floating red door!ReplyDelete
That is a great shot.ReplyDelete
what a great shot! yup, watch that first step!ReplyDelete
As my dad would say....watch that first step!ReplyDelete
Sometimes I'm not sure that all 'progress' is a good thing Birdman, would be nice if certain things could remain the same.ReplyDelete
Love the door to nowhereland!ReplyDelete
I would guess this is the door for unwelcome visitors... When they ask where the restroom is...ReplyDelete
God bless you!
love smelly junkReplyDelete
It is a good thing that this is not the back door of a bar. Can you imagine the patron's shock when sneaking out the back for a cig?ReplyDelete
Very interesting place.....ReplyDelete
I'm gonna try your apple cider margarita recipe...sounds delicious. esp since marg. is my drink of choice!
Very funny. You'd take that first step and would literally be blowin' in the wind! Heh, heh.ReplyDelete
I saw one of these, also. I think it was in Colorado. A building that had been renovated and someone had missed that silly door!
Hi There, I hate it when they get rid of the 'Mom and Pop' stores and put in those big retail stores. It happens everywhere... Dang it!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Bet it would have been fun 'rooting around' in that old shop...
Amazing photo. Color and composition feast. Red door is very inviting))ReplyDelete
