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.

Lefferts Blotter

Fearless Crime Fighting Duo Nicole "On-It" Fabri and Vinnie "The Man" Martinos comes through once again, this time with two and a half months worth of police blotter. Remember, this is culled from the wider 71st precinct, and they compile it by hand, so there's always a chance for human error. But you'll find these reports are pretty darn accurate for the nabe typically called Lefferts (a/k/a Lefferts Gardens, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, PLG, NE Flatbush, West Pigtown, Prospect Park East). I'm still holding out hope that someone will contact the 70th and do the same. And awaaaaaaaaaaay we go...

Was there a shooting at Nostrand and Fenimore last Thursday? Something was going on over there. I split before I got caught in the middle of something ugly. But as I was walking away it sounded like a gun went off. I was already around the corner but I wasn't about to go back and look. I never heard anything about it later so if someone fired a gun I guess no one got shot. Any idea what that was?
