Williamsburg Gets a New Playground

Just when you start to get comfortable making kneejerk jokes about Williamsburg hipsters and Park Slope moms, Brooklyn pulls the rug out from under you. In an unsettling confluence of Kings County stereotypes,  Williamsburg is getting a playground. It will be situated between North 7th and 9th Streets, and  financed by the Nestle Corporation’s Juicy Juice brand.

The kneejerk joke: Of course the Juicy Juice playground is in Williamsburg! Only unsweetened organic rice milk for those Park Slope kids!

The marginally better kneejerk joke: Perfect for a neighborhood of snot-nosed manchildren!

The actual reaction: Oh hey, cool, a park. Williamsburg Gets a New Playground
