It took F'd in Park Slope founder Erica Reitman a few steps to get to Park Slope, Brooklyn.
She grew up in the suburbs of Long Island, moved with her family to Florida when she was 13 (which she describes as the equivalent of hell on earth), went on to college in Washington, D.C., then moved to L.A. for a few years, and then Manhattan, before moving to Park Slope in 2006.
Reitman fell in love with Park Slope after visiting some friends in the neighborhood. She and her husband were eager to ditch the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, so Brooklyn seemed like a great choice.
Reitman lamented the lack of a snarky, Park Slope-centric blog, so she founded one in November 2008. It's a pretty brutally honest take on the neighborhood of Park Slope and the residents…who are described endearingly as whiney and know-it-all.
