A couple months ago, the Q was musing over the possible futuristic fate of the fabled McDonalds at Ocean and Parkside. Turns out, I wasn't far off at all. Have you peeked inside? Holy Angus! McDonalds has gone all McFancy. What with all the shiny new glass, it's hard to see inside, but a keen pair of eyes will note the incandescent light fixtures and mod furniture.
Most of the trad McDonalds facade seems to have been ditched in favor of subtler hues and lines.
Now, across the street, I snapped the below photo. Can anyone explain to me what's going on here? All I can say is that this marketeer has cajones!
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.
