- See also Wikipedia's article about "Park Slope".
Park Slope is a Brooklyn neighborhood that is largely bourgeois but still gentrifying around some of its edges. It is known for ex-hippies who shop at its food co-op, aggressive parents who have pimped out their strollers, and its literary community. It's home to quite a few Columbia graduates (including Paul Auster), though most are not hipsters; these congregate primarily in and around Williamsburg. Students in Park Slop have run into their TAs, family in tow.
The Slope is served by the notoriously slow F train; while on it, keep a lookout for editorial assistants with yet-to-be-published book galleys in hand. They carry them in a sadly misguided attempt to attract the opposite sex.
