Doors in/to Cities: Ithaca

by Peter Sigrist

I came across this door while walking home the other day. Framed by trees and connected to the ground by a fire escape, it seems both cozy and adventurous.

Here is the view from below. The stairway passes over a chasm of wood, pavement, and stucco. I think it would be nice to live in an apartment like this some day.
