Park Slope Heaven Gift Guide 2020

It's officially the most magical time of the year and along with Christmas trees on every corner and mulled wine in every mug comes the art (and science) of gifting. I thought it may be fun to pull together a Park Slope Heaven Gift Guide, with an emphasis on brownstones, local businesses, NYC / Brooklyn…

Getting a Puppy in Park Slope Heaven

September 24, 2020 | Meeting Tucker, our new Cavapoo puppy. Meeting our Puppy Tucker is a Cavapoo, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Miniature Poodle Mix (the kind of dog I had growing up) and came home to us on September 24th, 2020. Since the breeder was based in Ohio and we weren't able to…

Things I will always appreciate after living in NYC

I love to say that everything you hear about New York is true. The good, the bad, and the ugly...it's all real and it's all happening right now. The people feeding pigeons in the parks, the yellow taxis, the dog walkers, the eccentricity and the electricity. We move here with stars in our eyes and…

Park Slope Hello: Butterly Bakeshop

Let's talk about the chocolate chip cookie. First of all, it's huge. It also has sea salt flaked on top that makes the sweet become savory in a way I didn't know I needed. While the chocolate chip cookie is my personal favorite, everything at Butterly Bakeshop is delicious. You can stop in for coffee,…

Park Slope Hello: Charlotte Noruzi Art

Charlotte Noruzi's artwork is unique, eye-catching, and colorful---just what we need as the COVID-19 pandemic re-surges across the country. With all of the chaos and uncertainty in the news and the world around us, it's extra important to appreciate the good things, too. Good things like a trip home for the Fourth of July, a…

Park Slope Hello: Let Brooklyn Sleep

There's a big difference between saying you'll do something and actually doing it. Rob & Julianne Hebron, the husband and wife behind Let Brooklyn Sleep, had an idea and acted on it. When New York City became the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic in March, they were overcome with a desire to support businesses in…

Park Slope Hello: Medusa Salon

Park Slope’s neighborhood feel is largely due to the small businesses that line our streets. No two storefronts are the same and each business brings a unique story to the neighborhood, as do their founders. With the rise of Covid-19 and the CDC guidelines to #stayhome, many of these small businesses have had to close…

Embracing the New Normal

It doesn't feel quite right to be posting about things being "pretty" and "heavenly" when things are so off without acknowledging the changes. People have lost their lives; people have lost their livelihoods. At the beginning, there were memes comparing this to a war and I remember thinking that was very dramatic. It's a virus,…

Park Slope Hello: Sixteen Mill Bakeshop

We're about five weeks into the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine has us doing all sorts of things we haven't done before. For me, that means making sourdough bread. It feels a bit like a science experiment as I mix the flour and water together each night and wait for bubbles to surface. It must be…

Park Slope Hello: Rosewood Floral Co.

No two storefronts are the same and each business brings a unique story to the neighborhood, as do their founders.
