The house at 31 Marquette has been empty since 2010, when Richard and Cynthia Murphy became known by their real names, Vladimir and Lydia Guryev. The FBI raided their home and the world discovered that a pair of Russian spies had been living in Montclair. Their story was the inspiration behind the spy drama “The Americans.”
Now, the abandoned home that became an eyesore for neighbors and was first listed back in 2013, finally sold in June for $340,000, a price that is below market for the street. The “Murphys” had purchased the home in May 2008 for $481,000. CNN catches up with some of the Murphy’s Marquette Road neighbors seven years later.
