Mike Tyson’s Abandoned Mansion

mike_tyson_mansion_00

There’s is an amazing photo series on photographer Danny Wills’ site documenting an abandoned mansion that Mike Tyson used to own. I searched around a bit and discovered that someone named Paul Monea bought the mansion from Tyson and shortly after he purchased it, the mansion was seized by feds who are investigating Monea for a money laundering scheme.

    That sort of thing lights a fire in me. Although, if that place was in England, someone or some people would be well on their way to claiming squatters rights… namely, me!

    I don’t understand why all the comments on the mansion link are claiming photoshop. What advantage does making something look like shit gain in a state where people could obviously give a fuck about living? This place looks like ass I will give you 50k> really?
