The Mysterious Apartment

Here’s an awesome NYT article about an uptown NY apartment designed with clues to a scavenger hunt hidden in the architecture. The architect, Eric Clough, enlisted the help of writer Jonathan Safran Foer to create a mystery/puzzle that would then be embedded into the very walls of the apartment itself. There are secret compartments, hidden scrolls, word games – checkout the slideshow to see how some of it works.

Pretty cool. I wish I had mysteries like this written into the walls of my home. Instead we are stuck with the case of “why does that keep dripping?”
