It should be expected that the most beautiful building in New York City, an Art Deco masterpiece, would also have beautiful doors. Since we were in NYC last week, I made sure I’d check that, and I wasn’t disappointed. A short visit to the lobby of the Chrysler Building confirmed that it has indeed some very interesting doors. Sometimes it’s more about what’s around the doors than the doors themselves. This post includes shots of all the doors from around the lobby and main entrances, as well as some shots of the ceilings, walls, and other areas of the lobby.
Doors of the beautifully renovated Shopping Stadsfeestzaal on the “Meir” in Antwerp, Belgium. The building was originally constructed between 1905-1908, but destroyed by fire in 2000. Since then it has been fully restored with many of the original features back to their former glory. Lots of ornate gold leaf details.
