☞ BESPOKE: Stained Glass Doors
This brownstone on West 122nd Street (right before Manhattan Avenue) must be one of the best custom-made doors in Harlem. The stained glass was just put up recently, and the various shades of blue along with the classic-inspired, symmetrical, geometric pattern provides a modern update that feels perfectly period-appropriate. Usually the stained glass sections are relegated to the main window or just the transoms above each door. Having the glass detail on the door panels looks smart and is a great show of rebirth in the neighborhood. The potted garden out front is also a nice touch.
