A giant colorful beetle tries to fly between the ceiling and the floor of this parking lot. His wings seem filled with flower petals. So, the “Living Nature” project brought a set of huge insects that carry a note of living spirit to the space.

The 3,200-square-foot home has a library, formal dining room, a kitchen that was recently featured in New York magazine, and a master suite with floor-to-ceiling fitted closets and a bathroom with a rain shower and a deep-soaking tub.

Chastain, who was nominated for Academy Awards for “The Help” and “Zero Dark Thirty” and has been fĂȘted for “A Most Violent Year,” bought the home from Adam Guettel, the Tony-winning composer of “The Light in the Piazza.”

Street View: New York City's Doors


A photographic series of New York City's doors, from the Roy Colmer collection at the New York Public library

Roy Colmer/New York Public Library
This post is a Special Research Project of NPR History Dept.


Between November 1975 and September 1976, a man named Roy Colmer decided to photograph New York City's doors. Not all of New York City's doors. No doors in particular. And in no real particular order. But his aptly named Doors, NYC project amounted to more than 3,000 photos, which now live with the New York Public Library.

If you're like me and want to obsessively look at every single one, the best way to do that is here. But then, I did that so you don't have to. Firstly, note the door on the bottom left. For every dozen-ish non-descript door, you'll find a little treat — like a poster of a cat ...



... or a great store name like "Clogs Of Course" (also bottom left).
