I'm awed by the extraordinary mission of Save Our Streets (SOS) Crown Heights and strongly encourage anyone who wants to learn more about the causes and real community based solutions to street violence to attend. The flyer is below, and a website to SOS is here.
The Interrupters," , there is much work to be done on the ground. If you want to make a donation to SOS, or get to know their work more closely, that's always a way to put some skin in the game towards lessening violence throughout Central Brooklyn.
Highly, highly recommended.
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.
