Looks…flammable.
In Syracuse news, looks like the folk’s place is gonna go for about $450k, and the cash buyers also want to pay about $100 K in a separate transaction for the books, records, and the artwork.
Which also means that I don’t have to go and help my brother pack it all up.

My father was a rare book academic (and as such, a collector), mostly focused on Arctic and Antarctic collections that were on the ships and ports a few hundred years ago. The really valuable stuff has already been given to Arctic collections around the world, but the ‘b-stock’ still packs quite a punch.
He was also director of NYPL, (and of the Lincoln Center collections) by proxy, so he had amassed a respectable music collection as well. Manuscripts, plays, first editions, music scores, maps, you get the idea. A lifetime of bibliomanía put to good use.
However, he was not charitable to ‘collectors’, he thought of them as little more than hoarders. He believed art should be available to the masses.

it was nice of the realtor to make the militia get rid of the swastikas before listing


I assume the separate building are to prevent to wimminfolk from tempting the alphamanfolk.

rideit,did he have anything on Sir Earnest Shackleton? I read the book and have seen many a Doc’s. The story is hard to believe,like someone made it up. Did you know they found the Endurance?

It feels wrong but I kind of like it, artwork aside. That upstairs room is cool and it's got a fenced in yard for the dog. Obviously the place needs some TLC to go along with a fresh coat of paint and the roof looks like it's about 30 years old, but it's got potential. Need garage and basement pics.

It fails miserably in the 3 most important real estate principles, though: location, location, location.

:D
