A Bit of Pazazz

I was walking up 13th when I ran into Ramon, who was standing admiring his freshly painted handiwork.  I'm a sucker for gold, and these newel posts have got a real sparkle now.  He's going to be painting the railings and posts of a neighboring stoop too - the look has evidently caught on. 

At some point in the last year or two, someone gave a worn-looking firebox at Sixth & 44th that golden touch too.

And on 23rd Street, another firebox was recently adopted as a renovation project, with detailing in blue and white.

The smallest details matter!  These rebel jolts of color light up the the space around them. Why not ?
