Every house has a story and there are plenty of beautiful houses to be found in Prospect Park South, where FNY toured in spring 2011 — have 4 years passed since then?
This magnificent Tudor was commissioned by Charles Stillwell, an associate of Thomas Edison. Stillwell, an inventor himself, unsuccessfully experimented with an incandescent bulb, but an accident in the laboratory rendered him blind. Edison married Stillwell’s sister. The building contains 8 wood burning fireplaces, and the “S” for Stillwell remains on the brick chimney.
