Hobokenpix: Sideways Doors

1/14/2010:

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]

Hoboken Photo of the Day – 1/14/2010

I can’t help but look at this jury-rigged portion of the old Wonder Bread factory on Grand Street between 7th and 8th. Gotta love those sideways doors – with door knobs! Either it was a stroke of genius that led to that design (or a lack of money to do it more professionally!)

I remember the day they installed this thinking: I don’t know what they are trying to prove, but they have proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt. When someone says ‘Hoboken’ this is still the kind of thing that comes to my mind. Anyway, back at the schtick:

The loafers! Is that what they think a bay window is?
I don’t think the contractors were on the level, but that transom project is adorable. It was lite work, but above all it went sideways, and they ended up archenemies with the bakers, it was painful.

I’m just amazed that no one has stolen the doorknobs yet.
