278 resident throws a Houdini party

A resident of Houdini's former home in Harlem is moving out after ten years and decided to throw a magic themed party on Sunday for friends and a few lucky Houdini aficionados.

Included at the gathering was magician Brian McGovern, who performed at the party, and Michael Cartellone, the drummer for rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd and a major Houdini buff.

What a thrill it must have been for all who attended!

  1. How did you hear about his? So fascinating! Is the place for sale now? Or are there rooms for rent?

  2. Brian McGovern made a post about this on my Wild About Harry Facebook page. Not sure what the situation is with the unit. It's the top floor, btw.

  3. I don't know if I'd want to rent a room there, lol. But I'd love to visit! If I owned the building though, I wouldn't let anyone live there. I'd make it a museum and invite the public in for tours. :)
