Park Slope’s legendary pink brownstone is no longer pink.

The new owners of the iconic pastel property on Garfield Place between Seventh and Eighth avenues painted over the home’s blaring Pepto-Bismal hue this weekend and replaced it with a more conservative shade of brown.

The new residents, who bought the landmarked home in October for $2.2 million, gained permission from the Landmarks Preservation Commission to alter the color of the historic four-story house, which had been pink since previous owner Bernie Henry gave it the community’s most recognizable facade in 1971.
