Say Goodbye to Park Slope's Pepto Pink Brownstone

New, 9 comments

It's been a good run, but it's time to bid farewell to Park Slope's pink Palazzo Chupi. The infamous brownstone at 233 Garfield Place sold for $2.075 million, and the new owners want to wipe away the Pepto-Bismol color and restore it to the original brown. The former owner, 96-year-old Bernie Henry, painted the house the hated hue six years ago. Henry lived in the house since he purchased it in 1961, and the sale seems to be a sore subject for him. "I don't want to talk about it," he told the Daily News. Henry has been trying to sell the place for three years, but the pink color proved problematic for prospective buyers in the past.
