The late Chris Wilson's house.
Church converted into a home. It had a different design on the transom over the door in 1975 - as I recall it was sort of the silhouette of a glowing person. Chris Wilson was a very flamboyant gay man who taught at St. Lawrence College and who put on film festivals with Fellini, Bergman, Kurosawa, sci-fi. He gave me my first job, as a projectionist, and I showed Pink Flamingos at the age of 14! My parents should have been more attentive. This is where I took my first girlfriend on my first date. The interior had this amazing collection of things - thousands of LPs on the wall, crystal chess sets, posters, and Persian cats.
