I wasn’t going to tackle this research fuckery at first. I mean better sporkers than I have gone off about this. All that she said about Park Slope, is ridiculously false. I’m from Texas, and never stepped foot in NYC, but it took me all of 5 minutes to search Wikipedia to figure out that she should have put Clary’s apartment in the Bronx, or even Queens. Even I know that Brooklyn at the time this was set (which was around 2007) have been gentrified, and it’s very expensive to live in now. This is extremely sad, because Clare used to live in New York City. This is pure unadulterated laziness, which I can pretty much tell you is typical Cassandra Clare.
