Park Slope Stroller Mafia Has New Target —

2009_9_crybaby.jpgEven a man dedicated to "the understanding that human beings are...sane, loving, cooperative..." can be driven into Park Slope rage. Witness blogger Peter Loffredo's epic rant on a baby-infested neighborhood restaurant published on OTBKB: "Provini deliberately doesn't have high chairs, I was secretly told by a waitress, and there certainly isn't any room for strollers, but the exquisite wine list alone should keep kids out, don't you think? Not in Park Slope, where pathetic parents don't want to live with the choices they've made, so they crash everyone else's party." [OTBKB via Grub] from

Brooklyn is an excellent place for families with children. Their are numerous city parks with sprawling green grass, baseball fields, basketball and tennis courts. City run youth programs are available for children interested in activities such as tennis, golf and the arts.

The city is excellent for families with children. Reasons for this include all the great parks, museums and cultural institutions, theatre opportunities for children, sports and more. There is always something to do you with your child, and together as a family in this city.
