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.

Help Parkside Trees, Just Not THIS Sunday

 A small snafu, nothing big. (Only this year did I learn that S.N.A.F.U. is an acronym. Go ahead if you didn't know that, look it up, I won't tell anyone).

From Rudy;:

Dear Friends of Parkside,

The Parks Department tells us that they've had to delay the planting of our new trees on Parkside Avenue by a few weeks.  Our trees are on the way ... but will not be in the ground before this Sunday.

So, we are delaying the tree celebration & daffodil planting that we had planned for this Sunday, November 17.  Please accept our apologies, and please accept our promise that in short order we'll be announcing a new date!

More soon,

Rudy, for the Parkside Committee

Tim, can you use some extra daffodil bulbs? We have leftovers from the Lefferts Gardens Charter School effort on Parkside Ave. Let me know if you can find them a good home before the first frost.

Dear god, what about the children?

Suffer the children to come unto Parkside and plant daffodils ... in a couple of weeks, when the trees arrive, assuming the ground doesn't freeze first. Or, you know, just suffer the children in general.
