Â Â Just see the card alone mad him smile for it reminded him that parkland was as mean lead other around the neighborhood believe. In fact he believes she only is mean towards others in order to make sure no one tries to pull a fast on her on her family.

And so this is where we leave the kids of Park Slope.
Â Â Park Slope was originally intended to be a park of another sear that took place in the same universe however Edwin Lee Pope aka Dean S. Began. (Username Jockerlee 77) decided to make it as a standalone story line with in that universe. Edwin also decided to mark the story base on humor and would been written in the some style you see in the funny pages in the local news paper.
Â Â There were two stories Edwin had thought about for Park Slope. One was based on a Mystery around the neighborhood of Park Slop be choose to go with a Operation Busy Single where the neighborhood children would try to stop people from using their cell phone in fair the cell Phone. The story came about after hearing new report of people getting to accident while using their cell phone in the in place that got him shaking his head. One story a woman had fell into a water falcon because she texting while walking and did not see what was in fort of her.
Â Â This was the starting point into making a story that was more tongue and cheek and not dark in humor. And even throw it did had a serious supject matter, Edwin had written the story in a way that was over the top and in good fun. He did not want it to be over preachy or so serious that people would not enjoy it.
Â Â Park Slope also pays tribute toÂ The Peanuts,Â One Big Happy,Â Little Orphan Annie, andÂ Dennis the Menace. Parkland Monskey is a character that is molded afterÂ Angelica PicklesÂ form Rugrats,Helga Geraldine Pataki form Hey Arnold,Â Lucy for the Peanuts. as for Linda Copper she was mold after Edwinâ€™s favorite YouTube Movie reporterÂ Grace Randolph formBeyond The Trailer.
ï‚§Connection to the Park Slope in the book to the Park slope in real life.
Â Â Even throw the story is fictional there a view things that had been mention that really do excise. The wall in supermarket parking lot is actually a real place in 5th Avenue in Brooklyn that had a wall which separates 5th Avenue and Gregory Place. Also there is also a Dean Street playground as well as a corner bodega do actually excise the only thing Edwin added to the Playground was the tree house in the center of the playground which will be a main them in the Park Slope Universe in the near future.
Â Â Park Slope (Also known as Park Slope: Operation Busy Single) was the first story Edwin Pope had written for two Blogging web sites: Manic Expression.com and The Net Dewllers.com, and is planning to another Park Slope story in the coming fall with the title yet to be name.
