NY Daily News: We both have chills. Almost anticlimactic until you understand its sheer beauty, Cranberry St. can boast the location of four major films — Woody Allen’s “Manhattan,” Cher’s “Moonstruck” (she kicks the can), Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway’s “Three Days of the Condor” and Charles Bronson’s “Valachi Papers.” An old carriage house is across the street from two funny-shaped birch trees that always seem to make it in the shots, according to Hedges.
Almost done, Hedges walks to 70 Willow St., where Truman Capote penned “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “In Cold Blood.” It’s a yellow house with a garden apartment where Capote lived and wrote. Next month, Hedges will curate a reading series where writers or residents will read the work of the author who once lived at the home. He’s putting it together for the Brooklyn Heights Association.
