PARK SLOPE - For residents along Garfield Place in Park Slope, a coat of paint on a home has been a spot of contention for more than 50 years.

The brownstone at 233 Garfield Place had been painted pink for more than half a century, supposedly at the request of the then-owner’s wife. The color left residents divided, with some liking the quirky home and others hating it.

Recently however, the home’s new owner got permission from the city to give it a more traditional brown color.

Some residents who liked the pink color say the new coat of paint has taken some of the character out of the home.
