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.

A World Aprt
These signs are EVERYWHERE in our neighborhood. Once you notice the misspelling, you'll always notice them. The number belongs to an Askarinam Realty, which as you'd imagine, doesn't even handle rentals in most of the buildings with this sign.
Still, you gotta wonder how many of these things were printed before someone noticed. I've tried many times over the years to learn to say the word without a vowel between the p and the t. Not so easy, is it?
