Mystery

Since yesterday was my last day of work for the summer, I had to take a copious amount of pictures of my favorite apartment in all of Manhattan. The history, architecture, and mystery of this house intrigue me. Something makes me think it's haunted...maybe it is the overgrown shrubbery or the strange symbols carved into the metal gates. The plaque says that it used to belong to one of President Van Buren's family members, but I wonder who lives there now! Someone veeeerry very lucky, I'll tell you that. Someday maybe I will live here...but with muuuuch bigger closets ;)











I'll be in Massachusetts for the week...dropping my sister off at college! Sorry if posts are slow :(
