Nope. Quite peaceful really. But on a rainy, chilly Sunday, what's that line snaking it's way up Flatbush from the Metro PCS? Free phones? Wait...they're queuing up for Mango Seed! Awesome. Their brunch has really taken off! What you say? They're giving away Chicken and Waffles for Customer Appreciation Day from 11-3? Sweeeeeet! Mango Seed has become the go-to place for a sit-down these days. Despite the pricey wine (so says the wife), the food is good and the vibe is warm. And if I wasn't on a chicken-waffle-free diet I'd be there right now.
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.
