South Slope Buzz and Parade

The South Slope -- our neighborhood in Brooklyn -- has been catching lots of attention this week!

On Friday, the free daily AM New York printed a long piece about our fine nabe listing many of the great shops (including Greenjeans - thanks!), restaurants, and bars that make this a happenin' place to be.

The latest Park Slope Courier ran a piece about the South Slope Soiree, a monthly gathering of folks mostly in their 20s and 30s who live south of 9th Street and want to build a sense of community.

And today, Brooklyn's St. Patrick's Day Parade made its annual procession from Prospect Park down 15th Street and along 7th Ave., enlivening the South Slope with the sounds of drum, fife, and bagpipes, as the whole neighborhood took on a fun celebratory vibe. I ran out and took these pics...

Go South Slope!

I'm guessing these are Irish Setters...

High School kids dressed up for the festivities flash peace signs as they march along.

Some serious drum and fife action here!
