I’m  back in my NYC files for this week’s Thursday Doors post.

After walking the Highline and working up an appetite we stopped at a Taco Vendor’s on the Highline and enjoyed street tacos and nachos.  Full now we headed back the way we came and we were wondering what to do next when I spotted the Empire State Building’s spire. It didn’t look like it was too far away so, we decided to walk there.

While walking there I spied this red door and had to stop for a picture of it.

St. John the Baptist Church’s Parish Office Door

Red Doors

Right next to it was a garden gate with which led to a side door to the church.

St John the Baptist Church Side Door

I loved the potted garden, and the doors with the clover moulding and pretty stone archway.

I never saw the front of the church or the inside, but wish I had! I have no information about the church building or church I’m afraid.

This post is part of Norm 2.0’s Thursday Doors.  If you love doors and would like to see the doors others are posting, or post doors you’ve photographed and join other door lovers from around the world click here.

  1. Lovely shots!

  2. That red door jumps out but the side one just has so much going for it. It’s always nice to stumble across a lovely and unexpected find like these. Good choices 🙂

  3. Love both the doors, but those potted plants sure do set off the beauty of the second one.

    • Thank you so much Amy! I really like that potted garden. Maybe one day I’ll figure out how to have a few potted plants that thrive. 🙂

  4. Two very different doors on the same structure. I love that! Potted gardens can be so beautiful and somehow intriguing. Very nice capture!

  5. Great doors! I always admire the shock of a red door, they’re so dramatic. The church doors are fantastic in and of themselves, but I really love the potted plants! They sorta make the entrance, don’t they? Without them, that facade could read as cold and unwelcoming. Fabulous detail, all that texture against the stone and wood. Nice finds 🙂

    • Thank you so much Joey! You’re right that side door would have a whole different feeling if not for that great potted garden.

  6. Great finds Deborah! The red door looks like a face with a hat that winked at you.

  7. I love the red door, Deborah. The side door to the church is also very nice, but the red door gets the prise today. I know exactly where this church is. It’s on the opposite side (almost kitty-corner) of the block from the Molly Wee Pub. I’ve walked by it, but I guess I’ve always been in a hurry for some reason. You sure packed a lot of adventures into a short visit. I’m glad you got some great photos.

    • It was really close to the Molly Wee, and Madison Sq. Garden. That was the first time I’d ever seen the latter. I was a bit disappointed with that.
      In my mind it was like the Colosseum or something grand like that. 🙂

      That red door was lovely, and I didn’t see too many red ones while there.

      We got up early, and got back late most nights we were there. We saw and did a lot, but there’s still so much more to do and see!

      Thanks for the lovely comment Dan!

      • Madison Sq and Penn Station are not delightful to look at. Function over form, for sure.

  8. Love the pop of the red door with the cool awning but the potted plants outside the church door made me smile. 🙂

  9. The red door is perky, but I LOVE the second – just my style:) Yes, it would be great, it you go to on a trip again, to have a meal together on your way back home – all for it:)

    • Thank you Jesh! I’ll call you ahead of time when we’re headed over there again. Nothing new has come up on the market all week! 😦

  10. Love these doors!

  11. I would never have guessed it was a church simply because of the potted garden. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a church door surrounded by plants like this before now. I love it! It certainly makes it look so inviting.

    • Thank you Joanne! I’d never seen a church door with potted plants either. It was so refreshing, and inviting!

      I’ve tried growing potted flowers several times, and a lemon tree once. They needed too much attention and water for my gardening skills…which is nil. I’ve given up on a potted garden for the time being.

      • Like you, I love the idea but I’m lacking in gardening skills. I keep saying ‘next year’ but I never get around to it.

  12. I love the potted garden too. I keep telling myself I’m going to make one but so far I never do.

    • It was such a surprise to see it outside a church door!

      I’ve given up on trying to grow anything in pots. I’m just a miserable gardener.

  13. Love the red doors especially! Your trip to New York has yielded so many treasures 😀

    • Thank you so much Antonia! I love red doors. I would have a lifetime of Doors for Thursday Doors if I lived in NYC. 🙂
