Look in the northern part of Park Slope near the Q Train (Seventh Ave. and Flatbush). It's less big-money-yuppified, but still Park Slope. The Q Train is more convenient to Manhattan anyway.

Also, if people are snobby, it's more about education, career and lifestyle than income. Some people might not be able to distinguish the difference, but it's a big difference. Park Slope has a lot of successful creative types (indy filmmakers, writers, designers, etc.). It doesn't attract the hard-core banker/lawyer types that some other neighborhoods do.

I don't know what the others are referring to. Park slope is loaded with families of all types - multicultural, gay, lesbian etc. We are an example for the past 4 years and I have never had any diffitulties at all. What a great neighborhood Park Slope is!! And not at all snobby in my opinion. However, the parking comment was right on the money. We sold our cars when we moved here and that was a great choice.

Park Slope sounds more like the better fit out of the two. Williamsburg can be very pretentious. Although I really like the area, Im not sure if I could take my self seriously if I lived there. Park Slope is more family oriented. I second the recomendation to check out Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill. I dig all of those spots.
