South Slope, Brooklyn is a neighborhood that, depending on who you ask, might go by many names, might have many different boundaries, or might not exist at all. Whatever and wherever you call it, we love it, and we want to bring the same sense of community that we feel on the streets to this site. And we hope you, our neighbors, will help.
