When she started working on “The Girl on the Train” back at the end of 2015, Emily Blunt was rumored to be moving to Brooklyn since the movie was filming here in the city (despite the fact that the book took place near London). Now that the thriller opened at number one in the weekend box office, the sleuths over at LLNYC have uncovered that she and hubby John Krasinski did, in fact, move to the borough in December of last year, dropping $6 million on this landmarked Park Slope townhouse. According to filings with the DOB, they also spent $300,000 renovating the six-bedroom limestone beauty.

Built in 1899, the home is 3,390 square feet and has original features like marble sinks, bordered parquet floors, beamed ceilings, three sets of working pocket doors, built-in lead glass cabinets, and walk-through closets in the bedrooms.

As LLNYC notes, the couple, who recently welcomed their second daughter, sold one of their homes in West LA in July for $6.5 million to Kendall Jenner and listed another in Laurel Canyon last month for $3.5 million.
