Distressed Doorway

East Villagers love the dilapidated look of the neighborhood. The lucky ones live on the top floor of a building with no elevator, with steam heat, and ill-fitting windows that breezes blow through!

Others, who aren't as lucky, try make their buildings look old. There are many ways to do this, like door distressing! Here is one such example I saw while walking across St. Mark's Place this past week:

Distressed doorway.

It's pretty believable when you see it in a photo, vertically. Unfortunately, the effect vanishes when you view it horizontally:

Viewed horizontally.

The new bay windows just don't complement the tarnished look of the doorway.

Eating your cake and having it too… in the East Village Today!
