I don’t know if it’s still on the market. I wish I lived close enough to see it in real life. If only those walls could talk, imagine the stories they would tell.
Very cool, more recent pics of the abandoned Mike Tyson property. The place is about to be restored into a church! I’m looking forward to seeing the “after” pictures.
