This image is fifth in a current series on the Astoria Column. Here is the door that greets all who have climbed the steps to the top. Although it's pretty basic and functional, it does have some charm. I like the wood panels, and I'm glad to be greeted by something other than a flat, characterless, steel door. And it has a message: "You made it! Step through and see what lies beyond. It will be worth the trouble."
