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.

A picture was put out a few days ago for a rapist on the southeast side of the precinct. The perp was wanted for three known rapes in the area. The perp has been positively ID'd by at least one victim and they're waiting for DNA results from the other two victims.

Shame about the 2009 Black Nissan Maxima. I wonder what the victim was doing at 251 Lefs @12:30am while the car was running outside?...

Actually, I think I know.

Oops, that's 12:30 Pm, but still a shame about the maxima.

Yes, anonymous, I'm sure you do know, as does everyone on the block. Another case of the police doing nothing about repeated 911 calls - they always tell me, "We know the location very well. We have it under surveillance." So why does nothing happen? I feel really bad for the old man who owns that house - I think he is a victim of elder abuse by his grandson. I've called about that too, but no dice.

At least they were able to shut down the "nightclub" (complete with stirrper pole (and strippers) he was running out of the basement for a while.

I'll remember to grow eyes on the back on my head when passing through Rutland Rd.

Babs, I've had the same conversation with officers about places being "under surveillance". Its such BS. I've been here six years and Ray's is still "under surveillance".

stripper pole in someone's basement? how do people know about such things? i am amazed, walk by all the time and had no idea.

If you are complaining about suspected elder abuse to the police, I'd suggest trying APS instead. They will come out and investigate and take action, especially if you really have detailed reasons why you are worried, etc. If you already tried them, I am still worried... there must be something that could be done to help. APS could petition for a guardian ad litem, some random lawyer, to take over helping with his finances under supervision of a judge. Anyway, there are option out there if you see someone being abused by a relative the way (I think) you are suggesting this person is...
