As if to illustrate the need the point in the previous post and comments, just minutes ago a triple shooting took place on the north side of Lenox. Not sure about fatalities yet. Police have close off the block between Flatbush and Bedford. Helicopters above. Rumors abound. I won't pretend to guess what actually happened, and the info I do have is just from three separate reports off various wires. The cops wouldn't let us anywhere near the apartment building.
By the way, you're free to email me with info you're uncomfortable sending to the cops. At this point my phone is full of numbers of law enforcement people, so what the hey, why not make them useful.
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.
