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.

Flatbush Blood Drive Today

Got some blood? Of course you do! You wouldn't be reading this if you're dry to the bone!

Why not share a little. The 70th Precinct is holding is blood drive today. From the 70th:

         Just a friendly reminder about our Blood Drive, which will be held from 12:30 pm- 6:00 pm today, May 14, 2013.
        There is no substitute for Human Blood.  According to the New York Blood Center; One in three people will need blood sometime during their lives.  Blood last only 42 days.  Your donation now is critically important. We look forward to seeing you.  Thank you. (154 Lawrence Ave. between E 2nd St. and Ocean Pkwy)
 Remember, as the missive says: THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR HUMAN BLOOD.  Unlike teachers, sugar or dairy products, there is no alternative. Even vegans need red blood, good old human blood, be it A, B, AB or O. Remember the Ramones tune? ABBA-O, Let's Go!
