Who knew you could get organic beauty products at Back to the Land? Or rent backpacks, lanterns and other outdoorsy stuff from new shop Gear to Go! And take day trips! (well, actually we did know that, cause they're offering a rad FIPS Deal! Check it: you can get 20% off one of their day hikes just by mentioning FIPS).
Anyway, Park Slope ain't just all about Fifth Ave. SEVENTH AVE, RESPECT!

For those of you who regularly ride the 2/3 train, I KNOW you know what I'm talkin about: upon pulling into Nevins Street subway station, you have approx 30 seconds to 1 minute of a 4 bar, full throttle, bangin cell phone connection (at least with AT&T). It's like magic, right?

This story breaks my heart. The remains of an 8 year-old Brooklyn boy were discovered dismembered and scattered through out the borough two days after he went missing while walking home from camp. Leiby Kletzky was last seen on a surveillance camera outside of a dentist's office on 18th ave near Dahill Road. Early this morning his dismembered body was found in both a refrigerator in Kensington and inside a dumpster in front of Park Slope Auto Center's on 4th Avenue.
In the aforementioned surveillance footage the Orthodox Jewish boy was seen following a bearded man toward a gold sedan, but it's unclear whether the boy got inside the car. The man was tracked down through the dentist's office, where he had just visited to pay a bill. Police arrived at the man's Kensington apartment where they found some of the boy's remains in the man's refrigerator. He has been arrested and has made statements implicating himself in the boy's death.
