One clue that would help: Is that building occupied?

It has been 3.75 days since tag was set. Can we get another hint?

Summarizing what I see so far. It is a new building, opened in the past year. It is built on a slope. It does not look particularly large. This looks like the rear of the building.

I am going to assume it is not a motel, based on the absence of asphalt, pools and other amenities. Lots of wildflowers. No roads or trails visible, even in the background. Possibly in a park?

Hmmm, that does give me one idea. What are the chances a tag or two was set at or very near this spot when it looked very different?

@stu, that’s a pretty good guess.

The Ladies’ GAR Home in Swissvale: How would you repurpose this building with a Civil War history?

sadly, that Ladies GAR Home will probably be torn down. It looks like it’s been thoroughly gutted.

Too bad about Flight 800. Wow, that was over 20 years ago. I guess this bride has been up there a while.

If you can’t afford a penthouse overlooking Central Park, maybe I can interest you in one of these units?

Does the bride mural have something to do with TWD Flight 800?

Sorry, I guess I should have linked an explanation.
Judy Penzer was noted for her very obvious art. One of her murals was on the side of a 24-story building downtown that was torn down in 1997. (To build a four-story department store that didn’t last five years.)

Across from the Kid’s Museum. I think these P’s are a relic from the Manchester Bridge.
