I think it's fair to say that the Hawthorne Street Block Party was the bomb. Free sno-cones and cotton candy provided by some very sweet and fashionable post-grads,a puppet show with more imagination than the average Shari and Lambchop, a killer DJ with well-chosen loud but not tinnitus-inducing music, kids dancing, lemonade stand, Book Mobile...only bummer was that Yom Kippur meant it was Jew-less. Next year in Lefferts!
Here's a video that captures the spirit:
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.
