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.

Thanks for posting the listing for this PLG Arts event Tim, but if you meant "local treasure" you're too kind and I'm blushing; if you really meant "local treasurer" we're in deep s**t, because I can't balance my checkbook :-)

Seriously, most of the work that'll be shown has been dropped off at my house by now and the show will look great!
