The Tricolor House
We've long loved this tricolored house located at the corner of New Britain Ave across the street from Coyote Flaco. As know lovers of fluorescent colors, this house has is one of our favorites in Hartford. What would possess someone to paint their house three different bright colors? The Irish flag comes to mind but that's not exactly right. Our guess was always something more benign, most likely the owner had these three colors of paint and didn't want to buy more. We also were once told that the owners children were huge fans of a television show (Teletubbies?) that used these colors and painted the house this way to amuse the kids. Whichever it is, it's pretty awesome and we hope it stays this way.
