In NYC, you will come across amazing discoveries every few feet if you just keep your eyes open. I was walking to the train from a fun visit to the newly-reopened Metropolitan Museum of Art when this unique, wrought iron sculptural door caught my eye. And how could it not: It looks like a medieval Dragon is struggling to burst forth from behind a cage onto the sidewalk! Very Scary!

While I did not want to trespass onto private property, I did sneak a bit closer so that  I could get a good detail shot of the Dragon’s head. It is super cool! I have no clue who the artist is but what an awesome thing to have designed to make this building stand out. I wonder if Game of Thrones fans live there?

They’ve also kept the design cohesive by adding these spider-web-like guards to the first floor windows. This place is officially ready for Halloween all year long. Well done!

These Architectural Features are Part of a Five-Story, Three-Unit Building (According to Street Easy, Although I Suspect it’s a Private Home) Located at 52 East 81st Street between Madison and Park, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Hey! it’s Friday the 13th this week — the only such occurrence in 2014! — and What makes it even more exciting is that Mercury is also Retrograde. So, your luck will be extra shitty! Just kidding! Who believes in all that stuff anyway? Hmmm… Fact: As many as twenty-one million people around the nation fear this date, causing an estimated $800 million in lost business dealings each time it occurs. Superstitious or not, everyone is aware whenever Friday the 13th approaches and tries to avoid being unlucky, so it’s no big surprise that real money slot machines don’t get played very much on these days, people prefer use the betfair bet credits online.
