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.

Calling All Artists! New Art Time For The Q At Parkside

Application deadline alert: JUNE 17th!
When last we checked with the DOT, the "plaza" in front of the train station was still considered a priority spot, though we're not officially on the list downloadable on the site. If you or someone you know can envision a public space like "ours" as well or better than the current piece by the artist Specter - reveal thyself!

Personally, I've grown quite partial to Specter's piece. And the fact that it hasn't yet been tagged? Nothing short of remarkable.

If you need more info, feel free to contact me at You need an organizational partner, and it's likely PLGNA could fill that roll. Takers?
