Update on this post: Todd Bieber (no relation to Justin) found the owner of the mystery film he found in Brooklyn's Prospect Park during a winter snowstorm.
I hope I can visit them in Belgium or France or Russia or Holland or Minneapolis or wherever they're from
Todd Bieber was skiing in New York City's Prospect Park when he found a mysterious roll of film documenting the NYC blizzard. He hopes that with $26 and your help, he can find the owners and return their negatives to them.
