Bernie Henry (r.) had his brownstone painted pink, which has his neighbors feeling blue.
A Brooklyn homeowner has given his multimillion-dollar Park Slope brownstone a fresh coat of hot-pink paint – and that’s got outraged neighbors seeing red.
“It’s just over the top,” said Riva Rosenfield, 67, who lives directly across the street from Bernie Henry’s pink palace on Garfield Place.
“It’s not my favorite color,” added Thad Russell, 41, who lives two blocks away. “I guess it’s nice to see diversity, but I’m glad there aren’t more of them.”
Corcoran real estate broker Paul Zumoff said the brownstones on the block are valued as high as $3 million and that Henry’s house, which has three apartments, could fetch that much “so long as it can be restored.”
