When the co-owners of Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch opened the doors to the public yesterday, The New York Times photographer Jim Wilson was there. Though the 13,000 square foot main house and the grounds were cleared out 5 years ago, the evidence of an opulent lifestyle is still in place (ferris wheel footings, gold-plated bathroom fixtures, gigantic home theater, the train station, etc)...
The French Chateau style main house is virtually unchanged in the 20+ years that Jackson has owned the property and it's interesting to see the bones of a home that was on the cutting edge in celebrity style at the time.
