I often take a photo of  a pet when I look at a home as a real estate broker. People never object; why would they?  I don’t know the names of some, especially on the homes I don’t list for one reason or another, but I’ll get better with names as we go forward.

You hear stories of entire houses being moved, but how often do you actually see it happen?

If you have driven on Central Park Avenue you’ll know this building. The Eurpean Health Spa (more info here) has been derelict for quite a long time- perhaps decades. It was an active gym at one time, and the flying saucer architecture with Atlas in front  gained it some notoriety. However, gyms come and go, and perhaps the pricey location precluded anyone from reopening the place. It has fallen into neglect and overgrowth; graffiti covers the base, and you can see things hanging through the tinted glass that may indicate the ceiling has been breached by water or abandoned construction. 

While I was taking photos a passerby asked if it was finally sold. I told him that while I was in real estate, I was photgraphing it for pleasure. We both expressed what a long time it had been, and what a waste of both a remarkable building and prime property. 

If I had the money…
