One Day – One Door – #ThursdayDoors

Today is going to be a very long and very busy day. I decided to share a door photo that my good friend Brad Lewis passed along to me on Facebook. My regular readers will understand the appeal of this door. If you’re new to No Facilities, I’ll explain.

We have had Irish Setters for 36 years. The first one, Mitzi, used to sit like the dog in this photo. She sat like that on stairs, and she sat like that on a sofa. She would put her back end on the couch and keep her front feet on the floor. I think you can understand why this picture resonated with me.

East 7th Street between 2nd Avenue and Cooper Square
1976 – Wallach/Colmer

Brad’s comment when he shared this was: “When I saw this door I thought of Dan Antion….I’m still trying to work on the connection….

This image is offered as part of Thursday Doors, a fun blog hop hosted by Norm Frampton. If you like doors, you will want to check out Norm’s website. Each week, he invites people from around the world to contribute pictures of doors, gates, entrances, ghost doors and the occasional set of shutters.


  1. Hi Dan – love the memories of Mitzi … animals always make their way into our hearts … gorgeous. I was thinking of you yesterday up in Richmond town, and London town for that matter … seeing as I started there – Lambeth Palace (Archbishop of Canterbury’s London residence) … and the tiny 4 foot door leading up a tower, and then the entrance to Richmond Palace – a favourite of Queen Elizabeth 1 … but I’m not joining Thursday doors … but then I see many of them and think they’d interest you and ‘doors’ readers … but Mitzi memories are the best – cheers Hilary

    • Thanks Hilary. It’s interesting to see how Thursday Doors has made a lot of us pay more attention to the things we might have walked past earlier. This picture is special. The dog, just sitting on her stoop, watching the world go by, in the middle of one of the busiest cities on earth. Sometimes, I think there is much we can learn from our pets.

    • The long day is behind me, Teagan, it’s time to start catching-up. Brad shared this door a couple of years ago. Then, I guess Facebook brought it to him as a memory, and he shared it again. I may have missed it the first time (or perhaps I was reluctant to share photos other than my own). This time, I just couldn’t resist. It reminds us so much of our first dog.
