‘The Watcher’ Viewers Keep Showing Up At Real House In New Jersey, To Local Chagrin

After “The vigilant” paste Netflix on Thursday claiming it was based on a true story, countless viewers have descended on Westfield, New Jersey, to marvel at the house whose real-life owners were terrorized in 2014. Meanwhile, locals aren’t happy.

“As for the neighborhood, I mean, it’s been crazy,” city resident Amy Delpuerto told News 12 New Jersey on Monday. “There are people doing U-turns… going all over the place. So it’s a definite change for what is mostly a pretty quiet street.”

He added that the family currently living at the property “has nothing to do” with the story behind the new series.

“The Watcher”, created by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, stars bobby cannavale Y naomi watts as a happily married couple who move into their dream home at 657 Boulevard in Westfield, only to receive a series of terrifying letters that threaten their children and spark obsessive paranoia.

“All the windows and doors on 657 Boulevard allow me to watch and track you as you move through the house,” one real-life letter read, for today. “Who am I? I am the Vigilante and have been in control of 657 Boulevard for the better part of two decades.

The mysterious case was never solved. While “The Watcher” took creative liberties and changed the names of owners Derek and Maria Broaddus to Dean and Nora Brannock, it did use their previous on-screen address, spurring current expeditions to the property.

“All we’ve been seeing all day and night, even in the rain, is people walking by with their phones sticking out of passenger windows trying to get a quick photo or video of the house,” said Kristie Keleshian, News 12 reporter during a broadcast near the property.

The house is now surrounded with “no trespassing” signs and caution tape, according to CBS New York. Patrol cars are deployed intermittently in the hope that the police presence can curb the tourism plaguing the area as authorities are beset by complaints.

“Some people think you can just close the street,” Mark LoGrippo, City Councilman, told local news platform TapInto Westfield. “You can not do that. It is publicly accessible. You can’t stop people from visiting you, as long as everyone is tidy. But please be respectful of the owner and the community.”
