Grecian Nightclub?

February 26th, 2017 · No Comments

Our reader Eileen sent us these photos of a home in Greece, New York. For sale $200,000 below comparable properties in the area because…its owner reportedly owned about 50 properties in a money-laundering scheme for drug sales. $10 million in drug sales from 2013-2014 were recorded in a ledger found at this particular property; 1 kilogram of cocaine = $36,000. High finance, for sure! Here’s a link to a new article.

The house looks like a nightclub with several dance floors.

Rapper’s Delight: Hip hop and go-go dancers in this room, complete with photo mural of New York City.

Milk Delivery

February 23rd, 2017 · 4 Comments

From a 1936 Phoenix home: the original dairy delivery box & ordering dial. The milkman would deliver your milk or dairy in this tiny box at the side of your house and would see your request for the next order. There are a few homes in Phoenix that still have this. Very rare since Phoenix is a new town (1950s+).

This home also has a phone niche in the hallway. Under the phone is a tiny drawer (or open slot in some homes) where you put the phone book.
