Last week's weird Park Slope argument about whether mom's should switch off breast feeding duties has been supplanted by a new fight: the backlash about the neighborhood Barnes & Noble's attempt to limit strollers in the store. The sign that was created by a rogue manager or employee--who may or may not have been motivated by being mowed down--first saw the light of day when Daily Intel posted a photo of it, which we reproduce here. Who knew that such a sign would provoke a shitstorm of parental outrage in Park Slope? Woah.
Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn has posted several items about Stroller Gate, including this, this and this. In any case, the sign is down, but the conversation continues as retailers up and down the Seventh Avenue corridor consider their stroller policies.
