Do you often find yourself gazing at the Brooklyn Bridge thinking, "Man, that color is just perfect for my living room?"
You're in luck: New York's Department of Citywide Administrative Services is auctioning off 500 gallons of the bridge's signature "chocolate brown semi-gloss enamel," with bids starting at just $5 a gallon.
Talk about stretching your style budget. For a piece of Brooklyn history, we think that's a pretty fair toll.
According to the New York Times, the paint was purchased a decade ago for touch-ups to the steel superstructure, before the city decided a more durable paint would be preferable.
The city is also auctioning off several other paint colors (Pulaski red would look fabulous in your kitchen), as well as more obscure items: Can we interest you in a metal safe? How about 18 pallets of toothbrushes?
