The Rotting Rothschild Mansion in Paris


The Rothschild family is one of the richest families in the world. They are so rich, that if they decide to close their Swiss accounts, Switzerland would be plunged into a recession. I don’t know this for a fact obviously, but I love quoting Absolutely Fabulous.

The family apparently has enough wealth to leave a home in a prime Paris location rot away. Just 5 miles from the famous Notre Dame, in the Edmond de Rotschild park, is the Chateau Rotschild. Or what once was the chateau. Shrubbery, graffiti and decay have taken over long since.

Stunning bathtub views from 432 Park Avenue New York City; the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere


It has yet to be completed, but the artists impressions alone make for a big wow. 432 Park Avenue in New York’s swanky midtown area will be the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere once completed in 2015. Yes, that’s right, 2015. All images below are rendered images of what the building will, and interior could look like. The views will be hard to beat, that’s for sure. But I’m already dizzy with vertigo just THINKING of taking a bath there, so not for me.
