    I just found your blog, and I started at the beginning–
    I stopped short when I got to this entry though, because I think my hubby and I used to live here! I can’t quite remember the number (maybe 105 Bank Ave? I can see the address sticker on my Victoria Magazine in my mind’s eye 🙂 ha ha)(Is that mag even still in print??) but there were several mansions-carved-into-apartments along there. We were on the ground floor, in back, in a two-bedroom, with amazing high ceilings and ivy-wallpaper in the kitchen. This was 1990.
    Anyway, we were preggers so we bought a home in Cherry Hill and the rest is history.
    Dying of curiosity now– is there an update? This place really needs to be a B&B!

    Oh. my. I think I just fell in love with this falling down mansion. I came across your site on Pinterest and have been reading this morning to this point. Holy cow this is exactly the same kind of reaction that I would have had, and my husband would have looked at me like I am crazy, and I would have persuaded him that this would be PERFECT for our first house. Totally sane, right??
    Ah this is gorgeous!

    It had me at the reflection of the sunset on the water in the window.
    Found you on I don’t even no where at this point but it had to do with the ginormous kingdom mirror that you bought off of CraigsList. I have since been reading from the beginning bit by bit. You are hilarious and I covet your current house.

    I actually worked on this mansion in 1964 for a home remodeling company called Stankovitch Construction company out of Gloucester. I was part of a team that was putting cheap paneling over all of the walls, most of them with beautiful intricate details. I was only a 20 year old college student at the time but I cringed every time we put up another panel. I don’t remember it being in a state of disrepair at that time, but only needing much TL……not paneling! I think my boss was the first owner to convert the upper floors into rental apartments.
