I too should have added this earlier. Thanks for the GREAT photos of the Defeo home before Ocean Ave. Thanks astonio[/b]

In 2017, this really isn't a safe neighborhood any longer. A lot of drugs. I pass this everyday going to and from work. I think about he family everyday.

I loved how the old ads for the buildings cited "cross ventilation." Ooooooh. Yes, from "cross-ventilation" to a huge house with a pool and an air conditioner in many windows. Central air wasn't a thing yet, I guess.

Most of these photos were taken off the internet. This is not a nice (East Flatbush) neighborhood. It is a neighborhood filled with crime. Such as murder and drugs. I live about 20 minutes from here. I work 10 minutes from here. It's not a neighborhood you'd want to be caught in after dark. Not at all on weekends. What used to be a beautiful, place to live is now a hell hole.

Ok. Finally did it! Following, you will see where the DeFeo family lived prior to 112 and prior to John.

And by strange coincidence it turns out the future Mrs James Brolin used to live there too -

OK...just trying to keep all of this straight...

In the 1950s...Barbara Streisand lived in the Flatbush Gardens apartments in Brooklyn

In the early 1960s...and possibly as far back as the 1950s...the DeFeo family lived in the Flatbush Gardens apartments in Brooklyn

In the early 1960s...Christine Belford lived at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville

In 1965...the Defeo family moved from the Flatbush Gardens apartments in Brooklyn to 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville

In the early 1970s...Christine Belford appeared in several episodes of the TV show Marcus Welby, M.D. with James Brolin

In late 1975/early 1976...George Lutz lived at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville

In 1979...James Brolin portrayed George Lutz in The Amityville Horror

In 1998...James Brolin married Barbara Streisand
