Unusual as they seem, underground buildings are surprisingly common.

Every day, tens of thousands in North America work, shop, dine, study, and play in the more than three hundred public and commercial structures and five thousand private homes nestled in the earth.

Underground buildings are safe, attractive, useful, and comfortable places to frequent and live. Unlike a common misconception, most are dry and warm, and they are often sun-filled.
More than one hundred underground buildings are included in this fascinating subterranean tour. These buildings range from the famous to the unnoticed. Some were built for pragmatic reasons, others for aesthetic considerations, still others, for a combination of both.

There are impressive success stories and discouraging tales of failure. Some underground buildings are incredibly energy-efficient, for example, while others leaked so badly they were abandoned.

A vast spectrum of structures is presented, ranging from stunning examples of hidden opulence to humble subterranean cubbyholes where unassuming people immerse themselves in nature

Fabulous Finds: How Expert Appraiser Lee Drexler Sold Wall Street’s Charging Bull, Found Hidden Treasures and Mingled with the Rich & Famous gives readers an insider’s experience of the glamorous world of high-value art and antiquities deals, as lived by Lee Drexler, a leading appraiser of fine art, furniture, antiques and jewelry for over 35 years.

 
Drexler reveals the inside story on many of the unique, high-profile appraisals she’s performed in her career,  including her legendary appraisal of Charging Bull, the iconic Wall Street statue. Every art object has a human  story behind it, and Drexler’s work on evaluating the possessions of the wealthy, famous, tasteful and vulgar has  given her a novelist’s eye for bizarre tales and revelations of human character.

 
Fabulous Finds dishes on Drexler’s memorable and revealing encounters with celebrities, including Dr. Ruth Westheimer and Luciano Pavarotti, as well as some comic situations she’d rather forget—like when a famous  rock star tried to get her into his bed. From the Hollywood star who treated Drexler like an honored guest, to the  billionaire’s wife who begrudged her a few pieces of lettuce, to the beautiful young trophy wife who showed up  for an appraisal nude, Fabulous Finds shows fascinating people being themselves.

 
Fabulous Finds also offers a wealth of insider’s advice on how to get the most out of buying and selling fine art,  furniture, jewelry, antiques and collectibles. Drexler’s advice won’t make you an instant expert— but her hard- won knowledge of the inside world of art appraisals will help anyone to avoid being cheated. You’ll never look at antiques—or the people who buy and sell them—the same way again.
