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.

The $14 Million Parking Lot

Hey Big Spenders! Want tens of thousands of buildable square feet to play with? Have we got a deal for you!

According to the Brooklyn Eagle, the entire lot stock and barrel at 626 Flatbush, roughly at Fenimore, is now ripe for the picking. For $14 million, you could build your dreamhouse smack dab on the middle of our feisty festive main drag. We'll be keeping an eye on this one...the possibilities are endless! I'm rooting for glow in the dark mini-golf, or a Sizzler Steak House, or at the very least a Guggenheim Flatbush...

Anonymous, I'm *pretty sure* K-Dog couldn't swing that rent.

This parking lot has a festive nativity scene and Christmas tree in the outdoor portion of the lot at the back fence each year. You pass through the overhang to get there and it's like a secret, urban parking lot holiday-garden. My son loves to visit it. Rockefeller Center it ain't but it's still sweet. :)
