The Mushroom House or Pod House is a contemporary residence in the town of Perinton, New York which has been featured in television programs (notably HGTV’s Offbeat America series) and books (notably the Weird U.S. series) due to its whimsical appearance. Patterned after umbels of Queen’s Anne’s Lace, its brown color is more suggestive of mushrooms. The house was constructed for attorney-artist couple Robert and Marguerite Antell between 1970 and 1972 and was designated a town landmark in 1989.

The structure is sited in a moderately-wooded ravine adjacent to Powder Mills Park. The house itself comprises four 80 ton pods which rest on reinforced concrete stems of 14 to 20 feet in height. These fan out from three feet in diameter where they connect to the pods to five feet at the base. The sides of each pod’s “cap” are completely windowed. One pod serves as the living and dining area, one as the kitchen, and two as sleeping areas. An additional “half pod” provides an open deck area. The house has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 4,168 square feet.

"…It is delightfully situated on the south side of East Avenue, one of the most beautiful and fashionable streets of this city. The building stands about one-third of a mile south of the University of Rochester, nearly one and one-half miles south of east of the Court House, a few steps west of the princely residence of Mr. H. H. Warner, on what fifty years ago was a dense forest. Its horizon is nearly unobstructed, in every direction, in some points forty miles distant being had. In nearly every outlook, woodland, field and meadow combine to produce most picturesque effect."  - Lewis Swift via Wikipedia

One woman in Rochester alerted News10NBC that she had been left a note from the TSA on her dashboard, notifying her that they had entered her car to look around. TSA agents had apparently opened up her locked car using the key she left with valet parking attendants.
TSA officials said that they conduct a 3-phase trespass in your private property. They inspect the trunk, engine, and scan the interior of the car.
