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.

It woukd be niceif the music wasnt so loud that I can hear it in my apartment two blocks away. I might be willing to go and spend time there if it wasnt so loud. Often I just quickly walk down the ave get my food and flee - it really hurts my ears.

Unfortunatly, Play Kids won't be able to participate that day (it's one of the only weekends Carl and I will both be out of town).

Though, I'm working on organzing a "Play Kids Summer Bash" on a different date. More details to come.. (if anyone wants to contribute with activites/ideas please let me know)

And, yes Jen, I agree the music is usally way too loud.

I hate to say it, but I greatly dislike this "street fair". I put it in quotations because for the last few years, its just been super loud music and people wandering about. Each year the merchants involved are less and less and its gotten to the point where I prefer to avoid the neighborhood altogether rather than partake in the festivities.

Hardly worth calling it a street fair. Any of the neighborhood block parties is far superior and better attended.
