The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Great Start for Clarkson Block Association

It's official. The Clarkson FlatBed block association is up and running...and we can use your support!

Yesterday, my wife and I hosted 7 fantastic people to plan TWO events for this summer. The first will be a Block Beautification Day: SUNDAY, JUNE 6 from 1-4 PM. We'll be cleaning the block, planting flowers, applying mulch to our brand new street trees, and inviting neighbors to get involved. Kids in the neighborhood will be asked to "adopt a tree," which we hope will encourage young people to look out for our fine leafy friends.

We're also planning a Clarkson btw Flat & Bed BLOCK PARTY for mid-August. Why so late? The City needs 90 days advance notice...and mid-August is 90 days away. More on that later...

To join the Block Association all you need to do is send us an email at:

Thanks neighbor!
