FAO Schwarz Coming to Park Slope?

Is FAO Schwarz going to help shower Park Slope kiddies with toys like a $1,775 Titanic Ocean Liner with Steam Engine? That is what Crain's New York Business is reporting today via New York 1 over the weekend. Specifically, the report says that the nation's oldest toy store is planning two more stores in the city and that "the company is reportedly looking to have a presence in neighborhoods like Union Square and Park Slope, Brooklyn." You might remember the big toy retailer filed for bankruptcy in 2003 and closed most of its branches. Apparently, they're now ready to grow a bit again and think that the abundance of kids and affluent parents in Brooklyn will make for a good market.
