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 thought it was awfully thoughtful of this vandal to share his upbeat message - and in the same pastel pink paint as his tag.

Though I must admit that back in corn country where I come from, kindness is often spoken with a "hot dish" and maybe a jello salad.

Assemblyman Karim Camara is still sponsoring a free graffitti removal program:

Graffiti Hotline: Assemblyman Camara continues his efforts to keep the commercial
and residential properties of the 43rd District free of graffiti through the Graffiti Removal Program. In 2009, Assemblyman Camara allocated $30,000 in state funding to the Crown Heights North Association as part of a pilot graffiti-cleaning program for the Nostrand Avenue Commercial Corridor within the confines of the 43rd District. The initial program was an overwhelming success, and Assemblyman Camara has again allocated state funding to continue cleaning the 43rd District. This year, the program will be constituent driven, we ask that you call our District Office with the location of any graffiti in your neighborhood and we will ensure that the location is cleaned within 4 weeks of the complaint. Business owners and constituents should note that this program
is offered free of charge, and all reports and/or inquiries should be forwarded to the district office at 718-771-3105.
