houseboat? no, boat house
I see the top of this house from the Belt Parkway every morning on my way to work...it looks like a ship, complete with masts and portholes...I found it from street level yesterday when my daughter and I were trying to go to Loehmann's in Sheepshead Bay (which was, incidentally, "closed for emergency," which seemed weird, but whatever). I was finally going to have some time to drive around picture-hunting...took the picture of the house, turned the corner....then my car started banging, so we headed slowly home :-(
$800 estimate later, I am home today with my car in the shop getting a new exhaust system. sigh. it's always something, right??
I don't think you quite get the "boat-ness" of it from street level, but...
