The Brownstone is a carefully-restored and expensively-furnished residential located in Upper Manhattan.

History

In late 1989, Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore were hired to perform at a birthday party held in the Brownstone. Ray and Winston did not receive a very polite welcome from the 14 children in attendance who wanted He-Man instead. After they finished performing, Winston declared he wasn't doing anymore parties.

Trivia

  • In the August 5, 1988, page 4, and February 27, 1989 drafts, the Brownstone was located in the Upper West Side on West 77th Street.[1] [2]
