New York Shitty

Most recent post: “From The New York Shitty Photo Pool: Twosome”
About: Here, you’ll find things that you may or may not be interested in about the East Village and other parts of New York City. Appreciating what’s here while it’s still here. Remembering what’s no longer here. Wishing some things weren’t here that are here.
Most recent post:“Is this $300,000-a-month apartment the most expensive ever in the East Village?”
Fucked in Park Slope
About: Fucked in Park Slope (FIPS) is a blog about a pretty, gentrified, know-it-all neighborhood in Brooklyn. We mostly just like to talk about and make fun of all of the crazy shit that goes here, which works out pretty well cause there’s lots of it. We rant, whine, bitch, moan, and rant some more, so if you’re not down with that, now might be a good time to click your ass on over to another site. Otherwise, buckle your seatbelt and prepare to be Fucked in Park Slope like the rest of us chumps.
Most recent post: “Peen at the Tot Lot”
