Our favorite film location scout has discovered yet another hidden gem in our northernmost borough. During a trip through the Bronx's Highbridge neighborhood, Nick Carr spotted a standalone abandoned mansion at Woodycrest Avenue and West 167th Street. Sporting a quirky patchwork facade of gray stone, yellow brick, and red brick, the cottage-esque urban ruin is punctuated by chimneys and dormer windows?a far cry from the apartment complexes and one-story shops that surround it. So, what was up with that?
The only weird part is that the erstwhile parsonage isn't that close to the church, so it's a bit of a mystery why it is where it is. Check out Scouting NY for more photos of the intriguing manse, and hit up the tipline if you know anything about this house.
