Time has softened the look of Palazzo Chupi, one of our biggest West Village obsessions. The building debuted with a neon pink facade, which gradually faded to a "dusty Venetian rose" and led us to question whether that had been Julian Schnabel's grand plan. Now a tipster writes in with a fresh photo: "It's only now just beginning to emerge from its netting and scaffolding after a long construction project of some kind. What's most interesting is how that awful Pepto Bismol pink has been changed to a more eye pleasing color. Thank you Chupi for that much needed facelift. Welcome to the neighborhood!" Paler pinks make better neighbors.
