Again I’ve walked along the top of the Croton Dam many times, but until today I’d never noticed this door. Maybe, like the gravestone in an early post, it had been in the shade during previous visits and I hadn’t notice it. Today there was enough light reflecting back off the surface for me to notice it.

I was impressed by how solid it looked: the heavy looking stone surround, and the large number of screws/rivets. I also liked the contrast between the smooth, shiny surface and the rougher textures of the stone, and the flecks of rust.
