This Sunday is your day to pick up a free tree. Here's where you click to reserve one (probably best not to just show up). It's close enough...Newkirk in fact, tween Coney Island Ave and Ocean Parkway. And you can check out the ambitious "Compost for Brooklyn" project and site while you're at it, cuz that's where the pickup is. Here's the deets:
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.
