“I, atypical Park Sloper, childless and unemployed, heard the fireworks going off around 10 PM on busy 5th Avenue. No one turned, no one blinked, no one cared. Just because a handful of Park Slopers know how to make their whining heard does not mean they represent all of us. Park Slope earns some of its rep but repeated NY Times articles and the like are not helping. In a word, the shit is getting exaggerated. The worst child behavior I ever saw in a restaurant: Carroll Gardens. Just had drinks at Lodge in Williamsburg and saw more kids in the place than I’ve ever seen in a bar at Park Slope. So let’s ease up on the Slope bashing. It may be easy to do but that don’t make it accurate.”–And Now, Park Slopers Peeved About Amateur Fireworks
