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.

Helicopters Seeking Armed Bandit

According to the Twitterverse, the heavy helicopter action is about an armed robbery at the Green Lake Express, just down Flatbush at Caton. Same address (803) could be the deli next door though. This used to be the wonderfully named "Best Fast Food" store, which was just too down from Best Liquors and Best Meats. The cops pursued the guys and called for helicopter backup. Hope they found him/them. Hard to imagine a female in that armed gunperson role. Am I being sexist?

The address 803 Flatbush is the deli.

The noise is gone so maybe they were caught. Or not...

That's what I thought too, but 803 is listed as Green Lake as well. One would think it would be too bright and windowed to be a good target, but then they got Dr. Cuts not long ago, so who knows.
