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.

I've Been Jerkin' On the Flab'nue, All My Live Long Day

The Q's been digging the Peppa's, (nee Danny and Peppa's) jerk chicken and provision since the day he moved to the area. My only beef on the chicken has been their smoking out the neighborhood every few days with big bad barbecues out back (they deny even doing it, which suggests they know their chickens are choking the throng). Watching the above video, you'd have no idea they do it. It's actually quite remarkable on still days when the smoke hangs over the corner of Woodruff and Parkside like a cloud. Glad I don't have the asthma. All that said, it's nice to see Gavin get some airtime. Some know how to jerk, and then there's Peppa Hussey.

Dying of laughter. I got caught (43 seconds in) That's me.

You probably would have preferred when they operated out the fish store further up Flatbush. That location used to be a roti shop when I was growing up.
