If I Had $1 Million Dollars (In Garden City)


Canadian alt-pop group Barenaked Ladies had a hit in the 1990s called “If I Had A $1000000,” where they sang about what they’d buy if they had that much money. And while BNL crooned about purchasing a K-car, a monkey, a tree fort and Kraft dinner, they also included a house. The following Garden City homes are what their owners got for a tad more than $1,000,000.
