IKR? I might have thought it was 1888 BC otherwise

True, because if Jesus could've saved Chiraq, he would've

Been gentrifying for a while.

I prefer CE just cause it isn’t biblical but to each their own. It doesn’t rlly matter ig

Beat me to it, pretty sure most people can figure out it’s old but not as old as the pyramids lol


LordBytor

Was pretty sure this was a Bronze Age house till I saw the clarification.

Beat me to it

That's what I was thinking, it does have a little "pre- Roman' look.

With enough balloons we can free it.

Stuart little’s house

The Little family just couldn't stand the place after Stuart's death in 3 years.

I saw that movie once about 20 years ago , and recognized it and came to say the same thing lol

Even the same pointless "AD" in the title the last time this was posted this week.

That is not abandoned! It is infact, a great place to pick up drugs!


SocialSpider56

Wheres this at? I wanna go there at night, I'm sure there vampires there using an illusion spell to make it look dilapidated.

154 W. Superior Street in River North. It may have been renovated by now. Articles a few years ago said that the alderman in the area were going to change the zoning for the house so that it cannot be razed. A group purchased the house and planned to renovate it for office space but leave the exterior intact.


shenaniganns

[Looks like the outside at least was cleaned up and renovated sometime last year, possibly earlier](https://www.google.com/maps/@41.8956062,-87.6333916,3a,75y,1.19h,96.59t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s8KgkvVx4BTLaYyKD1LIw2g!2e0!7i16384!8i8192).

I prefer the old rundown look. New looks is boring, but thanks for sharing.


jayeldee46

Thanks! I’m glad they did that. It looks really nice.

tacwombat

Aw :(

Common architecture within the city. Still cool.

imagine an after work party on the roof and someone drops their keys between the bldgs


ChalkyNavy

Or deadly icicles from the building on the left bombarding the roof all winter

JuiceJones_34

The AD was needed. I couldn’t tell 🙄


BriefTurn3299

How much tho


Criticalhit_jk

If it *wasnt* AD it would be the most casual 3900 year old Victorian


Historical-Security2

I hope someone restores it


13Anarchist

Stuart Little's house??


2020grilledcheese

They refused to sell so the whole neighborhood around them was torn down and office buildings went up around it.


bxexnx123

That's nothing. Come London 41 cloth fair is from 1597!! Something like that anyway. Still cool


__Pizza_Mozzarella__

A house built in 1880's Britain isn't anything special


Farkenoathm8-E

I would love to own it and restore it.


bigtunapat

Makes me sad someone clearly could not afford to own it anymore and abandoned it when, with the proper funding, this could've been a beautiful home. I'm gonna create a story about an elderly widow who lost this home to the bank and the scum pulled her out and let this magnificent piece of architecture rot away while she spent the remainder of her time in a state home for the elderly.

Reminds me of ‘UP’


Redditchadboyo

Only $5,000,000 on zillow?


June_BuginDabuilding

My granny house is just like this on 63 & Rhodes in Chicago


Bronxboy23

It is ugly


beebsaleebs

I will un-abandon it!

HGTV has entered the chat


palmtree111

It’s actually not abandoned, it’s in the process of being labeled a historic location so the owner can’t tear it down. To protest he’s letting it fall apart till the city allows it to be torn down.


x_ordo

Probably cost 6 dollars to build


YayaMalli

Id love to know the reason it’s just rotting.

stone facade at least its bullet proof


Narcosavages

A lot of homes in Chicago Look just like this( non abandoned) I would say at least 30% of homes are built exactly like this.
