Stores In The Slope

Empty storefronts have started multiplying here in Park Slope. Some are newer niche stores- a yarn store, tucked just off Seventh Avenue. Others have been here for years- a Thai restuarant, a frozen yogurt store, a green grocer. The place with the handmade chocolate pudding. That gift store just down the block.

As I start my Christmas shopping, I'll be doing my best to shop at local stores. I may do my research online, but I'll bring my book list into the Community Bookstore, and have them order what they don't carry. It's the carved wooden place, right next to the wine store, you know, the one with cats and the blue-haired woman behind the counter. Because there are already too many empty store windows.
