New York Apartment Filled With Mystery

Aunt B was talking about building a house out of sod now that she won’t be signing papers on her dream home.

If she needs an architect, she might want to hire architectural designer Eric Clough.

Clough spent years working on a revamp of an upscale NY apartment for some really rich folks.

They gave him free reign and did he take advantage.

One of the apartment owners asked if he could place a poem he wrote to his wife and children inside a wall during the remodel. From that idea sprang an elaborate puzzle that encompassed nearly every inch of the giant apartment, resulting in secret codes, hidden nooks and crannies, an entire book written to further the adventure and a mystery that took two years for the family to solve. Everything from radiator grills to photos in the bathroom to spindles on a bed turned into clues.

How cool is that?
