    Jim Donovan played by Tom hanks in "Bridge of Spies" movie lived in 35 PPWest. His "drop box" was the sand box in Prospect PArk at top of Garfield Place. Joseph Murphy, the person confirming Gary Powers identity in the prisoner exchange on the bridge, grew up on Montgomery Place.

    Hello. I wonder if you can help me? I am writing the sequel to my 19th Century historical novel Áine and in it one of the characters moves over to New York to start an import/export business buying and selling cotton. I have been trying to find a suitable location in which to set the family home and think that Park Slope might be right but cannot find any information on the type of house they might live in. The Brownstone houses appear to be late 19th Century which would not be applicable. If you could give me any information on the type of house a wealthy businessman might live in - say mid 19th Century - I would be most grateful and place such an acknowledgement in my book. Thanking you in anticipation. Kind Regards, Tricia Murphy, Witney, UK
