Brooklyn Brownstone Painted Pink

Your guess is as good as mine. Neighbors must be horrified.

I'm horrified by the colors of the neighbors house. I say let's paint the town anew!

Um, well, at least they did a very nice job of painting it a lurid shade of pink...

Just on the eastern border of Akron there are two Levitt (sp?) houses that are only a couple lots away from each other but on opposite sides of the street (Home St.). The first house is painted to match the brownstone in this picture, and the second is painted the most brilliant shades of lavender and purple. Was always taken aback by the sight of them whenever I drove by... Don't live in Akron anymore but I'll always remember those two houses!

Pepto Bismol pink! UUUgh! I've seen cars painted the same color and several were flat finish. This is not a San Francisco painted lady, this is the other kind of painted lady.

the paint job itself is as excellent as the color choice is not. one must admit that it does highlight the architectural details, though!

I absolutely agree the pink highlights the fine detail work....

On the other hand, it seems a shame to paint a Brown Stone that has its own inherent style. Reminds me of seeing cool old timbers in buildings that are painted over, hiding the real beauty and wabi-sabi of the wood.

The practical hand sees that paint as future maintenance time/costs...
