Welcome to Park Slope Heaven! This is a blog for those who have been to Park Slope and liked it, those who have lived in Park Slope and loved it, and those who haven’t been at all (but appreciate brownstones and flowers and making a new place feel like home).

My name is Keelan and I’m originally from Arlington Heights, IL, about 25 miles northwest of Chicago. I graduated from Marquette University in 2014 (MU Rah Rah!) with degrees in IT & Marketing and have been working in tech at a market research company ever since. I moved to New York City (for work) the summer of 2015 and to Park Slope the following year. I instantly fell in love with the neighborhood – the community feel, how most restaurants and shops are family-owned, and (of course) Prospect Park. I also love to travel, do yoga, walk in the park, tourist around the city, read, and spend time with family and friends.

This blog has been a long time coming – I’ve wanted (i.e. needed) a creative outlet as well as a place to dive into graphics, design, etc. Please feel free to email me anytime at hello@parkslopeheaven.com (for submissions, partnerships, etc.) and follow along on Instagram. Thank you so much for reading. I’m so glad you’re here!

Instructions for living a life:

Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.
