brooklyn brown(?)stone

I'm always amused when I pass this house in
my neighborhood.  It reminds me of one of
my kids' favorite storybooks.


  1. Pure joy! Probably pissed off the neighbors, and I like natural stone, but sometimes the best answer is out loud and lovin' it.

  2. Bonjour !

    Je découvre Ton blog... Il y a de très jolies photos, dont celle d'aujourd'hui...

    Je reviendrai !

  3. I love it! It's a Pepto-Bismol brownstone!

  4. Bibi said it best about it being the color of Pepto Bismol! This looks like it has been colored in.
    & Uselaine is probably right about the neighbors. My parents painted their house a bright primary blue for years. the grandchildren loved it, but the nieghbors felt otherwise.
    It must be awesome to see this brownstone in person.

  5. webradio -- merci et bienvenue!

    Not sure what possessed these folks to do this. Personally, though, I think it's a hoot.

  6. Reminds me of a Sesame Street site without Oscar the Grouch. Bibi's right about the color...good choice of descriptors. I too would laugh if I walked by it, but part of me is also intrigued by it. Visually it does grab one's attention.

  7. The Big Orange Splot! I love that book!
