We've all probably lived somewhere a little less than savory. Even Google co-founder Sergey Brin, who became an overnight billionaire in 2004, apparently continued to reside in his low-rise Palo Alto building that is plagued with falling asbestos tiles and annoying neighbors. Brin may have had to deal with unresponsive landlords and shoddy construction as recently as 2010, but has since moved on to an estate that cost $7 million for the land.

In other news, there's a new book about Mies van der Rohe's Lafayette Park, and a woman traveled across the US using just social media. See the headlines after the jump.
