I don’t see a no skateboarding sign. Looks like a great place to skateboard.

It looks like someone spilled their water bottle. I guess they did not read the sign, No food or drink.

Yep, flood waters will do that to a hardwood floor, and sometime humidity alone can ruin them too. To a lesser degree, though.

In this case, roof leaks. I have seen some buckling, but this was a fun house :slight_smile:

That must have been a major roof leak with the likes of that floor.

There were at least 3 of these around the perimeter of the court.

That looks like a Tectum ceiling. If it is it falls apart like shredded wheat when wet. Major repair in and out of that gym.

Amazing how much wood will swell when wet. A major design asset in wooden shipbuilding!

and wooden water towers! they all leak when first installed until they swell up, then they can be water tight for over a hundred years. no sealant or chemicals whatsoever, as far as I know. one of my favorite parts of the nyc/brooklyn skyline.
