1. A Family discovers an Abandoned Brick Playhouse on their Property
In 2000, Matt and Anna Jone purchased a large brick house in New Jersey. They soon discovered that they were sharing their land with a tiny little brick playhouse dating back to the 1960s, and originally built by a couple for their grandchildren…

Despite this little house being every childhoods dream, the house has become a dainty New Jersey Landmark welcoming people from around the world who stop by for a picture.

9. California’s Failed Utopia
Photographer Chang Kim’s series is about the failed suburban development plan in California City, CA in U.S. that promised “Utopia” but only left bizarre remnants of the fanatic movements that swept the region in 1960s.
It is the third largest city in California by area, but most of its land is unoccupied and deserted. Only typical desert fields are seen on the ground level with no signs of development, but once the viewer’s perspective is elevated to a few hundred feet above the ground, the vast land in the Mojave Desert unveils unearthly scenes of endless paved roads and empty grids that were engineered for massive residential projects in the middle of literally nothing.
The frenzy seeking for a new gold mine of real estate in 1960s went on for years but the dream never became reality and it has been deserted for decades.
