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.

Brian Fernandes-Halloran Solo Exhibition


Remember that dude who led the charge for the Pop-Up Gallery at the old Mike's International on Flatbush, the space that's become the hair place "feel?" His name is Brian Fernandes-Halloran, also of PLG Arts. Brian is a super guy and his art is both approachable and full of criss-crossing layers of meaning and sophistication. (That's me being a visual art critic, and to quote Will from the musical "Oklahoma" That's About As Fur as I Can Go.)

The opening for Brian's big show is happening tomorrow, Friday, on the island of Manhattan (bridges and tunnels have been specifically designed to get you there), and I encourage you all to go out and support our local hero.
