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.

I'm going to start with the businesses. Because other than the people, nothing else more accurately describes a NYC neighborhood. Soon after we moved here, I discovered that I could live my ENTIRE life never venturing more than a block from my house. Groceries, hardware, knick-knacks, housewares, electronics, pharmacy, notary essence, you could just bury me on my backyard with a headstone "he never left...ever." It wouldn't be an adventurous life, but it would be a life nonetheless.

Are you a Bargain Hunter? Why not try...BARGAIN HUNTERS! SE corner of Flatbush and Clarkson, I dare you to beat their prices...on anything! And I do mean anything...(nice sign by the way guys).

This place often has really cheap laundry detergent that says it's Tide brand and the packaging is in Chinese. How do they even acquire this stuff?
