Park Slope comes to Paris: The newly opened Folks and Sparrows features a Brooklyn vibe, with folk tunes playing in the background, bunches of wildflowers on the tables, and butcher-paper-wrapped sandwiches. The Parisians are on board. Owner Franck lived in Brooklyn for a decade (hiking in the Adirondacks whenever he got the chance) before moving to Paris to open Folks and Sparrows in the North Marais. The Parisians are on board. Above: Rough-hewn wood tables define the space. Photograph via Play Like a Girl .
