NYC – Homes on Shaded Street – Open House

Homes on Shaded Street – Open House


It seems that a builder has erected 17 colorful houses of different shapes and sizes on  East 83rd Street between York and East End Avenues. Many of them are still empty and awaiting new arrivals. I should probably mention that these homes are attached to trees and poles along the street.

Figured it out? Yes, they are birdhouses.

Some of the birdhouses have specific addresses on them, corresponding to the building it sits across from. Others have words like “peace,” “home” and “good times” etched into the solid wood homes or into pieces of scrap wood seemingly picked up off the ground and nailed into the tiny structures.

Some are red, others are yellow and some are multi-colored.

Some of the houses bear words like “repose” or “peace,” while others carry more personal messages.

It just goes to show that along with well-recognized neighborhoods like Chelsea, China Town and Mid town there many streets in within them that have just a one-block character. There may be some in your neighborhood, so take a walk and find them.
