3. Juan de Pareja by Velasquez - $5,544,000, in 1970

When it was sold at Christie's in London for £2,310,000 /$5,544,000, it was the first painting to sell for more than a £1,000,000, setting a new record for the price of paintings sold at auction.

Vacation spots you've visited that you'll never go back to because it sucked.

1. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
2. Orlando, FL
3. Atlantic City, New Jersey
4. Niagara Falls, New York

crime-ridden, run down, touristy. I'm talking about the American side. The Canadian side was simply touristy.

More humid than pure water, and the hotel we stayed in was under-deconstruction. I caught a cold, sleeping next to a moldy air conditioner.

To clarify, the hotel was terrible and it was super hot and humid. Seeing the sites was nice though.

7. Vernon Valley / Great Gorge Ski Resort, NJ (currently called Mountain Creek)

Poorly designed and maintained area, icy, ungroomed trails and obnoxious, sketchy skiers (cutting in line, screaming at their kids, stealing food from the cafeteria)

Sorry to hate on NJ as with Atlantic City above (which I also disliked due to sketchy vacationers and a poorly maintained area). I know many lovely NJ people, but in these 2 spots they seemed determined to uphold the stereotype of NJ being full of loud & rude jerks
