Some great photos came my way via local resident Kendall Christiansen, who led the effort to make Maple Street School happen at the Prospect Park Q/B/S more than 15 years ago. Check these out. I trust you all know the two stations in question, shot mid-1990s. And yes, for those of you to new to remember, the Q was the D back then, and bizarrely, today's B was the Q, which I used to always associate with "Quick" for express. The brilliance that is NYCTA! And yes (too perfect for words), the name of that presumably Korean owned deli is "Seoul."
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.
