Park Slope North? Now They’ve Crossed the Line

June 28th, 2006 · 2 Comments

Park Slope North? Has the Brooklyn property rush delivered us to the point where someone can refer to a community like Prospect Heights as an extension of its neighbor to the south?

Apparently so. A listing for a $1.65 million, new three-family development on Underhill Avenue refers to its location in “trendy Park Slope North (Prospect Heights),” as reported at Daily Heights, which notes, “Haha…be sure to update your business cards.” Another commenter is less diplomatic, writing “Park Slope North? I want to slap this guy.” The message board also contains a number of shots taken at the development itself. Now, what GL wants to know is, does this mean that Ratner Land is going to be Park Slope Northwest? Or is Park Slope to be known as Ratner Southeast?

On a related note, we learned at the Brooklyn Blogfest last week that Daily Heights‘ founder is moving from Brooklyn and that the brooklynian.com message board will serve as its replacement. As GL has learned much from Daily Heights, and its cousin, Daily Slope, we certainly hope that the void is filled quickly. Meantime, we will redouble our efforts to scan the discussion board every day.

    Park Slope North ?!?

    What happened to North Park Slope?

    Or the Judean People’s Front?

    The only thing worse would be some dumbass acronym – ProPaCro or some such.
