Everyone knows that $60 is pretty cheap for a lot on Baltic Avenue. Believe it or not, the Monopoly property prices have not changed since 1934 when Charles Darrow created the game (the taxes, on the other hand, changed in 1936).  So what would the game's properties cost if Monopoly was modern?
 
Side-Note: These are 1995 inflation prices, please remember that property costs have more than doulbled since then.
