What to do and eat in South Slope: The best spots in the unseen Brooklyn neighborhood

Park Slope may get all the attention, but there are still a few things to discover just south of its border. Though no one can formally agree about the boundaries of South Slope (most say its northern border is 15th Street), the neighborhood manages to retain a feel all its own.

Here’s our guide to the often unseen neighborhood that includes everything from an artist’s coffeehouse to a late-night mermaid-themed bar.
