Sylvia Plath Quote and Other Unexpected Doors

Ever since we stumbled on a Pinterest page devoted totally to DOORS, we’ve been mulling possibilities and wondering why we don’t see more imaginative doors around New York City; most are from Europe where age and eccentricity are the norm. That is, until we spotted the wondrous trompe l’oeil door in Brooklyn (above) and this garage door in Queens scrawled with a powerful quote from Sylvia Plath:

“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”

We would be happy to walk by this every day.
