Queens House Attempts To Be Made Of Every Type of Building Material Known To Man

I noticed the side of this house while scouting a neighborhood in Queens and was quite impressed. I see shingles, stone, concrete, brick, aluminum-siding, and two types of what I think is asphalt siding.


Add some stucco and a few clapboards, and I think we have a Guinness record contender here.

  1. Having grown up in Queens, I believe that house could be located in any number of neighborhoods. Can we get a clue as to which one?

  2. Great beat ! I would like to apprentice at the same
    time as you amend your site, how could i subscribe for a
    blog web site? The account helped me a acceptable deal.

    I had been a little bit familiar of this your broadcast offered shiny clear idea

  3. Wow! I came across your blog in my search of a post I’m writing for my blog: Atypical60

    I was looking for some photos of old-school shingles that our old house in Ozone Park was covered with. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any photos of that particular shingle, but I found this pic. Please don’t sue me, but I’m going to use this pic for my blog. I’m going to mention your blog in it though. Hope that is ok! I’m looking forward to reading many of your posts! Thank you!
