Couch in a street of Park Slope: who’s going to be the first to pick it up?

Have you seen the YouTube video "Shit Park Slope parents say"? It is funny because it reminded me so much about my beloved Plateau Mont-Royal, the neighborhood where I was living in Montreal.

On the Plateau, we were having this phenomenon which I called the “magic sidewalk”; Saturdays and Sundays, the area would turn into a real treasure hunt as everyone was looking for second hand things to bring home for free. You could put anything on the sidewalk and it was gone within 30 minutes. 

Apparently, Park Slope in Brooklyn has also “magic sidewalks”; this is why I am pretty sure that this vintage leather couch has found a new home quickly!
