2) Park Slope
Coming in at number two? Park Slope. What could the Times possibly have to write about when it comes to the neighborhood that is basically its ideal target audience in both income and sensibility? Well, everything. There were pieces about the "turf war" between parents and singles, about where Obama lived when he was in Brooklyn, about the controversial rezoning of prized school districts, about writers living and where they like to drink coffee, about everything you could possibly imagine people in Park Slope want to read. But way back in 1981, Park Slope was limited to only 57 mentions in the Times. Everything has changed. Everything.
