A Vanderbilt mansion on 5th avenue in manhatton built in 1878 and demolished in 1926 to make room for commercial property and because the owners could not afford to pay the new property TAXES.a Real tragedy....

I snowboard, play guitar, ride rice rockets (need to get another), like fishing, boating, and keeping my pool clean. I like my pool water to be perfect like "silk" water. It is an art to do this. When this is obtained a pool needs little chemicals if balanced properly and im talking 40,000 gal.

Scooter, I love architecture too. Especially old Victorian homes and light houses. That is a shame to see something as beautiful as that mansion destroyed. I'll bet the inside was Awesome.
I'm actually going to Ireland in the fall, just so I can check out some of the Medieval castles over there and have a few beverages as well.

Fantasy football Even had my own fantasy football Web based business until my hobby became work. Lol

Great! Would love to go to Germany and see the castles there especially Neuswanstein (I know i spelled that wrong). Some great castles in France and England too!by the way I love the old victorian houses too,I have even drawn myself one to build if we ever come back to a really good economy where real estate prices come back to normal and I can make some decent money...

Disc golf. I get out and throw whenever I can. That's my active hobby, passive hobbies include a vast Mad magazine collection from the 50s to current.

I'm a fish keeper, discus, flowerhorn cichlids, saltwaterand corals, also a retro audio collector.
I have 1000s of vinyl records, reel to reel, (silver faced era) stereo equipment.
It has slowed down because of pins though. But I'll always love vinyl.

How could I have failed to mention this? I too am an avid vinyl collector, 3000+ pieces, many rarities.
