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.

Fire On the Bayou

A neighbor snapped this pic across Ocean of a fire in the park.

Wow. Imagine what would happen if a real serious brushfire started there? That never even occurred to me. I guess it would have to be super dry. Storms of Fire. And what if the other 9 plagues visited Brooklyn in this modern age? Everything from the frogs and flies to the locusts and lice. Actually, the lice seems to already be a thing. Here's a great website to check out if you're into nitpickers, or need your nits picked. Great music too! Apparently the Hasidic community has the nits running scared.

Actually this would be a great opportunity to introduce you to the "Lice Lady," queen of the louse killers. Abigail Rosenfied at your service.
