Sir Patrick Stewart, Brooklyn’s coolest knight, has been doing what he can to fit in as a New Yorker, namely enjoying the sunsets over South Slope and folding his pizza like a true native (although his subway etiquette still leaves something to be desired). But one thing sets Stewart and his wife apart in his Brooklyn neighborhood, and he’s had enough of it.
“I think we are probably the only residents of Park Slope who don’t have a stroller,” said Stewart to Intelligencer on Thursday, at IWC’s For the Love of Cinema event. “I’m actually beginning a campaign — well, I actually began it with Mayor Bloomberg — about banning strollers.”
It’s no use trying to blend in with the baby-pushers, either. “It wouldn’t work. Look at me,” he said. “We do eat a lot of kale, but we don’t have a stroller.”
