1. According to the precinct, the 71st is the smallest by land. That is to say, we are roughly a square mile but more than 100,000 people. We are denser than even seemingly denser and taller nabes on Manhattan? Really? Well, remember Ebberts Houses - that's 12,000 people right there. Can't confirm that. Choice tidbit though. Especially given the 1-family thingamajig happening in the Manor, which obviously is but a sliver of the pie.
2. Master Ed Fanning, your CB9 chair of Transportation, says that despite the fact that the Flatbush Corridor project of DOT will present their finished plan to y'all later this month, they're going to try to fix the Lincoln/Washington/Flatbush cluster#@ck immediately. I posted on the hole project here.
Oh, and guess what? The poster for the Flatbush Corridor meeting came in from Pearl Miles as I wrote that.
Okay, three things. I was challenged by a commenter so I wrote this about the Nethermead being closed down again. This time to celebrate the love that is Nickelodeon:
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.
