Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #97

Here we are again, ready for your favorite little meme!
My kids have never been to Manhattan. Neither my husband or I are from NYC, and so when we've taken trips to see the US, it just hasn't really come up - we generally spend the little time we have with family. But like I said, we went all out this time, and so, since we were driving from Washington D.C. to Boston anyway, it seemed a nice idea to stop in the Big Apple for a day. When we first got to Times Square, my youngest (not so young, but still) looked up and me and asked, "no one actually *lives* here, right?" 
:)
As always, feel free to click on any of the photos, to get a (much) closer view!

 But things got prettier and less overwhelming as we moved on:




For those of you who are here to see some Israeli architecture, here it comes. Remember that tower that I photographed for you in the dark? Well, I finally made it back over there in the daytime :) Here it is, in all its glory!
Anyway, now it's your turn! To participate in Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! just post your photo of a window, door, or anything architectural, link here, and sign up in the widget, below. Then go visit the other players, that's the best part! You never know what cool things you might get to see, from all over the globe...
That's it for now - have a wonderful, whimsical week, everyone!
I just realized that the signs in the top two photos are perfect for Lesley's weekly meme, which I quite unfortunately haven't participated in for far too long. So I'm linking there too - do go and check out Signs, Signs!

You drove from DC to NYC? Ah, the charms of I-95 and the New Jersey Turnpike are as endless as the trucks, tolls and construction. But Times Square is a hectic neon clad mass of Humanity. Better you saw the rest of Manhattan, the variety of architecture truly amazing - it appears that the roosting pigeons have a glorious view of steel and glass (although the windows on the building to the right look as if they have been painted on - and stylishly too. The tower in Jerusalem is lovely as the sandstone makes the tall building look a bit more approachable - a shame nobody uses stone like this in the US. Great trip and photos!

What amazed me about Times Square is that it isn't a square but NY is the place to view some fantastic architecture.

Manhattan is a busy place. And I love it!

love the detail in the fourth photo but hate the skyscrapers passionately

Like the photo out of the trees.

The pigeons on a wire add so much. :)

I'm hoping my hundreds of Meitar postbox doors will qualify as delirious doors.

P.S. Does anyone know what they call the mercaz chaluka and each ta chaluka in America?

Definitely great detail in image 4, as Gerald (above) pointed out.

Beautiful reflections in your last image.

Thanks so much for visiting my signs contribution. Hope to see you participating more with Lesley's weekly signs challenge.
