One of the Q's pet peeves for some time has been the blatant inaccuracy of the names on an awning that I pass on my daily commute to the Q at Parkside. There's a western entrance to 225 Parkside that's home to a small medical suite. Recently we noticed the awning had gotten a makeover, and presumably reflects the actual doctors in residence:
Note to doctors: we entrust you with a great deal more than our insurance cards, cash or medical secrets. Please do your best to keep your offices clean, fairly well painted, bathrooms tidy, your awnings true, and those lab test specimen mail boxes working properly and not rusted-through with locks a-plundered hanging open creaking in the wind. Those small things really don't inspire confidence in your abilities, though perhaps we're naive to expect much from doctors at all these days. Marcus Welby, MD was cancelled back in 1976.
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.
