(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.

Daily News Piece On Our District
Thanks Gersh and and Sasha at the Daily News for paying attention to our race for City Council. Of all the media outlets that this blogger and other neighbors have tried to reach out to, only the News responded. And they responded big, putting challenger Saundra Thomas where she clearly belongs - as the one candidate who can really pull out an underdog victory against the incumbent. It's not often (almost never) that an incumbent loses in NYC.
