We love all of the woodwork on the brownstones in Harlem but sometimes adding a little color is the way to go.  When walking through Astor Row on 130th Street between 5th Avenue and Lenox, one can see quite a few variations of entranceways on the north side.  The above set of well maintained homes a bit further east on the block have just the right pop of color to brighten up the neutral brownstone while many other abodes just have naturally varnished wood finishes.  Just a couple of door over, the neighbor has decided to even provide more brightness by painting the entire building a peachy hue.  Neutrals with bright accents are more our aesthetic but unexpected color is always delightful in any situation.  There are few shells still on the block that are not so lucky but hopefully will look just as sharp one day: LINK
