An Odd House in Bensonhurst

I live on the cusp of Bensonhurst and Gravesend in Brooklyn. Both are residential areas; not too quiet and not too loud. However as you drive towards Bensonhurst on 85th street, you might pass by a rather “noisy” house. The owner, Steve Campanelli, collects life size statues of icons (real and imaginary) from Elvis Presley to Betty Boop. My parents drove past this house many times and my eyes never fail to give this unique home a darting glance. Finally I decided to knock on Steve’s door and uncover the story of his statues in photos.
