Massive Brownstone Awnings
[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]
Are awnings supposed to be so close to the ground?
Uptown, there’s a few brownstones along Bloomfield Street that have these unusually massive awnings. So big, that only a lilliputian could effectively walk under them without having to bend over.
I opted not to take the “History of Awnings” elective in school, so my untrained eye thinks this “style” was either a short-lived trend in the home decorating world, or they just bought them a couple sizes too big. I can see something like this working if you had a door that was 15 feet high – but here? Unless it was done on purpose to save on home cooling costs.
Anyone know for sure?
