New coat of paint

Walking down Elizabeth Street, you may have noticed a door unlike all the others...a tiny red door with its own stoop and mailbox.

237 Elizabeth

In case you're wondering what the rent is, don't bother - no vacancy!

At Christmas, there is a wreath...

And, recently, someone has given Mr Thomas Cat a new coat of paint.

So, next time you're in the area, be sure to stop by and leave a note or treat...

That is too cool! That last photo is priceless! How did you find this?

@Marty - it's been there forever, longer than me.  I'm actually not sure, but there is an artist in this building who (I assume) is responsible.  You should check out his window display which features a miniature of the building itself, complete with a super-mini Thomas Cat door.

That is absolutely divine!  How sweet.  Will have to track it down next time I'm in town...

I love this. I want one (or should I say, I want one third).

Very nice!....I think I saw something just like it on 14th st, between 8th and 9th about a year ago.  Bobby.
