You may remember that last month we told you about a grandiose but dubious proposal for a massive wax museum proposed for what would have been the Foxwoods casino location at Delaware Ave and Tasker Street.
Well, seems that this project is even more unlikely than we thought. The Daily News reports that the man behind this proposal, Robert Avery, has been soliciting donations toward a museum that for all intents and purposes will never exist.
The paper essentially comes right out and calls him a phony. Avery doesn’t even live in Philly, but actually works for the Navy in D.C.
On his LinkedIn page, Avery writes that the museum is “organized and operated exclusively for the relief of the poor, the distressed, and underprivileged and for the advancement of education, historical, cultural awareness for the Great Philadelphia Region, all while lessening the burdens of government.”
Great place, right? Quick recap: There is no museum.
