What's going on, Albuquerque?
It's been gone a long time.
Sad to see it go, with no hope now of returning to its past beauty. On the news, I heard that it had once been surrounded by high wood fences and foliage -enough that you could barely see the house. It must have been lovely.
Actually, it was a chaotic unkempt place for about 30+ years. A place of mystery and myth, inhabited by a rotating roster of eccentric unpredictable people.
I agree with Grumpy - by the time I first became aware of it ca. 20-25 years ago, the "high wood fences" were more like a thicket of ailanthus and other "trash trees" that cut it off from the outside world. It was a place with a lot of history and potential, but that potential was pretty far gone by the time anyone really started making an effort to do something about it.
Now that I think about it, they stressed many trees more than they did wood fences. The romantic in me filled in the rest. D
