When creating content in a specific place, you need to define the "parent" attribute. To do this, you need to provide the API reference URI to the place where the content should be stored.
The easiest way to get this value (if this is not a UI, and just a simple REST call) is to user the Places service and check out the @self reference for the place in question, and use that value for parent.
Hope that helps.
