Artistic and Painted Doors in NYC

If there were a contest for most-unique doors in a city, I think New York City would win in a landslide. Below is a collection of artistic doors from Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn - some have been painted with murals, some are covered with street art, others are overflowing with sticker art graffiti, and some are just cool-looking for whatever reason.
