  • For Kids
    Among Park Slope's most recognized (and most mocked) qualities is its welcoming climate for kids. Strollers are a constant presence on the neighborhood's sidewalks, and sometimes even in its bars. Fittingly, the area is also home to notable institutions that cater to children. The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co.—where customers are asked at the register to affirm the superhero creed, promising to use purchases only for the forces of good—sells such practical goods as capes, cloning fluid and even canned intelligence. The shop raises funds for 826NYC, Dave Eggers' nonprofit that teaches writing to kids. At Puppetworks, meanwhile, Nicolas Coppola—who's been a puppeteer since the 1950s—puts on spectacular shows. The venue also hosts birthday parties.—JZ
