5. The Halloween House, 1306 Albemarle Rd

1306 Albemarle Road Halloween House

1306 Albemarle is best known for the over-the-top Halloween decorations put out each year by its owner, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire. During our tours of Victorian Flatbush in October, you will get to see this house decked out in full Halloween decor.

The Queen Anne-style mansion was originally built for local businessman John S. Eakins in 1905. Like many other homes in the area, it was designed by John J. Petit. You may recognize the home from its small-screen role as a filming location in HBO’s Prohibition-era drama Boardwalk Empire.
