The Q at Parkside
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.

Clarkson Beautification Day - THIS SUNDAY!
You might be asking yourself "what is this beautification day thing all about anyway?" And the fact is, we're not really sure what it's all about, because we've never done one before.
But...there will be mulch, there will be lemonade, there will be flowers, there will be brooms, there will be garbage bags, there will be planters, there will be potting soil, there will be music blasting out of 31 Clarkson Avenue, there will be neighbors to say hi to. If you don't start someplace, you never get no place.
Mulch ado about nothing? Yay, I doth think not.
Come sign the petition for a closed-street block party in August. And at the very least, think about how you'd like to make your street a nicer place to call home.
See you there.
