HKFP Lens: Explorers enter ‘The Crane’s Nest’, the abandoned home of Bruce Lee

by HKURBEX.

The Crane’s Nest, the site that was once home to Hong Kong’s prodigal son Bruce Lee, has the potential to become a homage to the martial art legend.

 Though it seems unlikely the government would spearhead such a project.

After Bruce Lee’s death, the home took an arduous fall from grace. Mainland billionaire Yu Pang-lin bought the site in 1974, and converted it into a love hotel, popular among rich couples.

The fate of the Crane’s Nest has been hung on uncertainty for years, and the recent death of Yu in 2015 did not improve matters. Currently, Yu’s family are finalising legal procedures to deal with the estate but it is unclear whether the house will be stay put or not.
