Own a piece of movie history for $9 million

Miami New Times is reporting that the building on Ocean Drive where one of the most bloody scenes in movie history was shot is up for sale.
728 Ocean Drive in South Beach was once a location seedy enough that Colombian gangsters dismembering a dude with a chainsaw didn't seem like much of a stretch. Today, the building that hosted one of Scarface's most notorious scenes is on the market. Asking price: $8.95 million.
Selling points of the property according to Realtor Pablo Alfaro: "Rare oceanfront property located on one of the most famous pedestrian streets in the world."

Random Pixels would love to add 728 Ocean to our real estate portfolio but the price is a little out of our range. As New Times points out, "Like most real estate asking prices, this one seems a bit optimistic. The county recently appraised it as being worth $3.7 million."

So we'll just have to be content with merely witnessing a bit of movie history rather than owning it.
