Pull-Enter Exit-Fall


Doorways in Fernwood can be rife with issues. I am not sure it is wise to enter through the dorsal spines of a dinosaur.

Nor would be good to be too hasty coming out of the door shown below. Lousy spot in the dark as well.

  1. Watch out for that first step! There are several doorways that I know of in downtown Rochester that are like your second photo (I wish there were more like the first). None have the required steps to make exit or entry easy. I’m guessing at one time they were required to have back exits for fire regulations.


    • Hi Ken – those big step doors are always quite interesting to me. Imagining what the staircase looked like before, and why the door is no longer in use can occupy quite a bit of time. In this case this building was clearly of some interesting commercial variety – it has a very large window from the street side on the second floor, almost like a dance studio or something. The building looks like it is well over 100 years old as well.
