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.

Toomey's To Stay Open - Til You Come and Start Your New Business In This Prime Location!

Here's the long and short of it, from a regular, who got it from a longtime waitress. Toomey's owner owns the building. He's looking for someone to lease it - he's getting old and is ready to retire. He'll keep it open til the right deal comes along. Good news for greasy spoon lovers. If you haven't been, hustle over to Rogers and Empire before a piece of history is gone.

Which means, as far as I can tell, a truly unique utterly awesome space is available for someone with vision and grit, gumption and elbow grease, and not least, a culinary flair.

Love Toomey's... Hate to see it go. BTW i think the house next to the diner is part of the deal.
