Brooklyn: One big room full of bad hipsters?
On a scale from American Apparel to Hipster Ariel, Park Slope ranks about “thick rimmed glasses.”
If you’re looking for somewhere scenic with interesting sightseeing (check out the ridiculous signs I saw there below) or some great thrift stores, you’ll be at home in Park Slope.
What do you even call this restaurant?

For those who are fans of Helvetica and cool design, Park Slope will be your typographical heaven.
How annoying is it to get there? A little bit: ride’s about an hour. Take the 1, transfer at 96th Street to the 2, get off at Grand Army Plaza, and you’re in Park Slope.
Did it break the bank? No, window shopping and touristy sightseeing are always free.
However, I did pay just $7.50 for this awesome sailboat drawing I picked up at a thrift store.
Worth the trip? Eh, somewhat.
If you’re looking for something intellectually stimulating, don’t go to Park Slope.
However, if you’re looking for somewhere scenic, cool, and new to explore, Park Slope’s an awesome place.
There are countless thrift stores to comb through (highlights included cool old records, paisley suspenders, and a ton of great bow ties). The area’s also really scenic, with some beautiful buildings.
And, if you take the F train part of the way home, you’ll get an awesome view of Brooklyn and the New York skyline; a few minutes of the ride are above ground.
TL;DR: Park Slope is a medium-sized room full of kinda cool hipsters.
Getting Out of Morningside will feature a different adventure every Saturday.
