Brookyn's History House


When Elizabeth Giddens bought the wood-framed home in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn, she had no idea how much history the house contained.

From turn-of-the-century society galas, to depression-era speakeasy, to 70's R&B House parties, to 80's crack depravity - her house had seen it all. And Giddens was able to determine some of the house's storied past by excavating the junk which had been dumped into a mysterious tunnel below the home.


Read the incredibly interesting story of the house (and it's garbage) from The New York Times HERE.

I LOVE stories like this, and I'm so glad you shared it! I'm sure the owner has uncovered but a fraction of all the stories the house holds.

And I bet it IS haunted...they just haven't seen the ghosts yet! :)

Hugs, Beth
