Pretty in pink houses all over New York City

With Valentine’s Day coming up next week, drugstores, elementary-school hallways, and chocolate shops are bursting with pink.


But on the exteriors of some New York brownstones and walkups, pink rules year round.

Fuschia-pink, as in the case of this home in Chelsea. Kind of looks like its made out of bubblegum, no?


This modest walkup on East 12th Street features a more pastel shade.

Pink is an interesting choice for a house color, especially in a city known for homes dressed in reds, browns, whites, and blues.


Pink is warm, inviting, and soothing, like the hue of this Chelsea brownstone, above. It can be dramatic and playful too, and of course, pink symbolizes love.


This little 19th century structure, in Long Island City, sports a faded patchy pink. Check out more examples of New York’s cherry blossom–colored domiciles.
