REMEMBER: A DOORWAY ON WEST 127TH


A photo from the Museum of the City of New York circa 1964 shows a unique entrance on West 127th Street just east of Fifth Avenue.  Taxidermy, holiday lights, intricately carved door and a hand painted sign are all there along with some major industrial gates.  Today, the twin buildings still stand and the doorways have been made a little more simple in presentation as can be seen in the lower photo. One major point to note here is that the heavy decorative elements also previously included heavy security which does not seem to be the case these days.
