The Derelict Mansion Lover

Just as one man is sinking more money into houses on Virginia Park Street than they are worth, his neighbors are giving up on Detroit and moving to the 'burbs after 29 years. Is Jeff Corwin crazy for spending about $125,000 each on houses he bought for $25 K and $19 K ? It seems the Freep might think so.
