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.

Q-Catastrophe This Morn
As I suspected, the switch back to Q-only trains at "the Q at Parkside" left a bevy of bewildered travelers on the platform. Remember, only local trains from now on - bye-bye B. And if you're traveling today (and probably through the week), leave a bit more time for your trip. This morning, trains were super-crowded and painfully slow. Thank god for brick-breaker on the blackberry. To all those who rely on the B for your commute, we'll miss you! Thankfully, the Caton entrance to the Church stop ain't too far to walk for Calendonians.
