What a metalious response.
 
2013-07-14 10:47:14 AM
Based on the quotes in the article, I'm not sure this is an inappropriate location for the billboard. In fact, it might be a perfect Peyton place.

How the hell does an article that only makes farking sense to New Yorkers go to the main page?

I'm sure all the happily married husbands already know about the place. That's where they met their trophy wives.

Funny. The Post belittles Park Slope who doesn't want a strip club ad in their neighborhood. But how would the Post react if a strip club billboard were to go up close to property Rupert Murdoch owned?
 
2013-07-14 10:58:05 AM
There is a simple solution.  Form a consortium and buy up the rights for all the Park Slope billboards.  unless you are willing to put your money where your mouth is, stfu.

To be fair - he actually has a good case for complaining about the billboard since it could hurt his brand/image and therefore profits. Even if that profit is arugula based.

Got it.  People should dumb down their writing for dense readers.  Makes sense.  Note to all writers, please make sure your writing always reflects literal truth and is never sarcastic or ironic, as not all readers can pick up on the subtleties.

Or they could try writing something other than silly fluff pieces. But I suppose it's entirely too much effort to ask reporters to do something as simple as report, now isn't it?

All this because you could not spot an obvious joke comment.  Yes, because you could not tell someone was obviously joking, all fluff articles should be stricken from media.  Makes perfect sense.  

Maybe the article wasn't the problem.

Came here to say that.  Above 5th ave and between Flatbush and 9th.  None of that out to 15th st BS.

This billboard is nothing.  The strip joint on the main drag a few blocks from our house has had "I Came, I Saw, I Came" on their marquee for the past few days.

El_Perro: 4th Avenue is not "Park Slope"


It is not "prime" Park Slope, but technically speaking, yes, it is Park Slope.  4th avenue to PPW, and Flatbush Ave to Prospect Expressway. Those are the official borders.

/Lived many years @ Carroll just off PPW.

So, any part of Park Slope that isn't fully gentrified isn't Park Slope then?

El_Perro: 4th Avenue is not "Park Slope"


The East Side of 4th Avenue is certainly Park Slope. 4th avenue is the dividing line for PS and has been for a long time now. However, this is beyond stupid.

Park Slope was gentrified long before Hipsters came along.  I lived there for a short while in the late 80's, and it was already mostly well to do wealthy young couples with kids.  It was baby stroller central.  And lesbians.  Lots of lesbians in old Park Slope.  I moved back there for a few years in the 00's, and it was still like that, but with more dogs and less lesbians.  Just recently is when a few hipsters started to move in.  There is still some lesbian bars, but not as many.

/did I mention lesbians?

I grew up in Park Slope in the late 80's and 90's, and that is what the original boundaries were.  Back then you didn't even go below 6th avenue unless you were headed to Manhattan.  Who knows what brokers are calling Park Slope these days to sell houses, but I still get a kick out of hearing them call the neighborhood below 5th Gowanus since I only associate the polluted canal by the same name.  it would be like naming a neighborhood East River.

You're talking about the busybodies complaining about the billboard, right?
 
2013-07-14 12:09:08 PM
Flatbush Ave and Prospect Park West are obvious and non-negotiable neighborhood borders.

The idea that nothing south of 9th St qualifies as Park Slope is frankly outdated. Today the commercial avenues and residential streets are largely the same in character down to at least 15th. The neighborhood will never make it across the Expressway, though.

Despite the puzzling new condo buildings going up along 4th, I can't consider it a residential area, thus it cannot be Park Slope.

The blocks around the canal have been called Gowanus as long as I've been around (15+ years), but it's shrinking as "Park Slope" expands.  Anything east of the canal and as far south as the deep 20s gets called "Park Slope" by realtors these days.
 
2013-07-14 01:08:18 PM
I live down the street from this (on the Gowanus side) so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

Honestly I wish there was no billboard there at all - I don't care if it's for a strip club or organic baby food...

I also lived in Park Slope in the late 80's, early 90's.  And I've always known the boundaries as 4th avenue to PPW, and Flatbush Ave to Prospect Expressway. And no, I'm not a real estate agent.  Those guys will list Sunset Park as Park Slope.  They used to list Crown Heights as Park Slope, but now they list it as "South Williamsburg".

So this billboard is on my street.  As a local resident, I'm more offended by the lack of quality merchandise and obscene prices at Ivy Garden than I am by the advertisement for Peyton's Playpen.

As noted above, 4th Ave is typically considered the dividing line between Park Slope and Gowanus.  But 4th Ave also is where one of the primary subway lines providing service to Park Slope is, so the Park Slope residents are faced with the billboard every time they use the local subway.

If I was selling property in the area I would say it was in Park Slope.  If I was purchasing property in the area I would call it Gowanus.

Oh, and please help to prevent the EPA from turning our local pool into a sewage tank: http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/brooklyn/brooklyn-double-pool-dan g er-article-1.1390153   by signing this petition: http://www.change.org/petitions/epa-make-the-polluters-pay-not-our-co m munity-save-the-double-d-pool

Having grown up in park slope, historically it was the park to fifth ave (that's where the street names changed) and flatbush to 15th (those were the borders of the park north to south) Nowadays park slope goes everywhere from Manchester England to  Sydney Australia. (anything for rent increases.
