The Racket Club Apartments

Early viewings of DOTD made me aware of a large building on a hill overlooking the Mall. My first trip to the Mall cleared up the mystery of what this building was: The Racket Club Apartment -- condominiums for the jetsetters of Monroeville, Pennsylvania.

The view from the parking lot of the Racket Club is breathtaking and a must see -- but beware the climb if you set out for it from the Mall's parking lot at its base. It's steep! I've seen it written that Stephen King wrote the novel "Christine" in a room he bought here due to his fondness for DOTD. Something I too always wanted to do. (No. Not write "Christine", but keep a room in the Racket Club Apartments.)
