The Brownstone is a combination of a boarding house, apartment building and family home. It is located on the city's waterfront edge.


The Brownstone Murders (1985)

The building was introduced in 1985, when Bobbie Spencer and her husband Jake Meyer, purchase a Brownstone on Elm Street and began assembling tenants for their new home. Among them were Frisco and Felicia Jones, Tania Jones, Tony Jones, Terry Brock, Kevin O'Connor and his brother Patrick. The building also contained a law office in the basement which Jake used for work.

Soon a man named Neil Johnson was found murdered in the Brownstone with a sleep-walking Terry, standing over him with a knife. The murder sent shock waves through Port Charles, with the Brownstone killer remaining a mystery. Neil was revealed to be a cousin of Kevin and Patrick. The strangled corpse of Neil's uncle, Earl Moody was also soon discovered, leading a suspicious Bobbie and Jake to start an investigation on Terry. Jake later discovered Kevin was the murderer who framed Terry, planning to marry and kill her for money. After a struggle Terry killed Kevin herself by pushing him off of a cliff.

Bobbie's Ownership

In 1986, Felicia was injured after a fire broke out in her apartment, she was rescued by Colton Shore. Later that year during a storm, Bobbie was forced to deliver Tania's daughter B.J. in her apartment. Bobbie also allows Frisco and Felicia to hold their wedding ceremony in the backyard of the brownstone surrounded by family and friends. After Tania's death Bobbie adopts both B.J. and Tony's son Lucas raising them together as a family in her first floor apartment.

When Jake left town to help flood victims in Paraguay, Scott Baldwin moved in and after convincing Bobbie to file for divorce, Jake never returned. Scott then dated Bobbie for a short while working out of the basement law office.

In 1991, the building was nearly destroyed when an earthquake occurred leaving Felicia injured after falling from the staircase. Bobbie, however quickly made plans to renovate the brownstone.

In 1994, on the day of B.J's death, Tony angrily kicks Bobbie out of the Brownstone, having discovered her affair to Damian Smith. They later reconcile for a few short years, until 1996 when Bobbie discovered Tony was carrying on an affair with Carly in their home.

After Frisco left town in 1995, Felicia chose to raise her daughters, Maxie and Georgie in the basement apartment of the Brownstone. A few years later when Felicia fell in love and married Mac Scorpio she and her daughters uprooted to the Scorpio house.

Tony and Bobbie divorced shortly after their affair, though they remained friends and lived in the Brownstone raising Lucas for many years. Bobbie often hosted many events such as Halloween parties, weddings and Thanksgivings. She is also more than welcoming to allow friends and family to rent a room whenever they needed. Some of these include Colton Shore, Jennifer Talbot, Tom Hardy, Simone Hardy, Marcus Taggert, Florence Campbell and Carly Jacks. She was also not afraid to voice her opinion of residence she didn't approve of such as Tiffany Donely and Ryan Chamberlain.

In 2006, after Tony passed away, Lucas decided to move away to Seattle. Bobbie, wanting to be near her son, eventually followed leaving the Brownstone abandoned.

In 2014, Michael Corinthos became the new CEO of ELQ Enterprises and revealed that the waterfront district residing the brownstone has severely deteriorated. He then enlists ELQ along with his brother Morgan Corinthos and girlfriend Kiki Jerome to oversee a rehabilitation project creating several new jobs for the community. Shortly after Levi Dunkleman was arrested at the Brownstone while he and Maxie were protesting the redevelopment project.

When Morgan and Kiki finished their renovation of the Brownstone they became the first residents of the refurbished home. Ava Jerome, Kiki's mom, also temporary comes to live with them while she is hiding out from Sonny Corinthos.

In October of 2014, Avery Jerome-Corinthos was born at The Brownstone after Nina Clay forced Ava into labor by injecting her with a drug. Shortly after Avery's birth, Nina kidnapped her as revenge against Ava and went on the run with Franco.

In December of that year, Michael evicted Morgan and Kiki from the Brownstone.

In June 2016, Elizabeth Webber and her boys are shown to be the newest residents of the Brownstone due to their previous house being blown to bits earlier that year. They live in house number 12.
