The owner of Genny's Diner on Frankfort Avenue says it will be at least two weeks before he decides who gets the property he owns next door to his restaurant.

Frank Faris is giving this 100-year-old Victorian home away by order of a judge. 

But it won't be exactly for free.


The city says the historic home must be refurbished.  Faris had plans to tear it down for more parking and Tuesday many people have expressed interest in it.

"A free house is what brought me out here. You can see it needs a lot of work. But for the price, it's worth a try," said Raymond Getsfred.

Faris says he is accepting proposals for the property right now.

He is facing hefty building code fines and possible jail time if he doesn't get rid of it.

His next court date is April 1st.
