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.

Friends of Wingate Park - Stop Gun/Gang Violonce Forum

Recently honored for her work in the community, Vivia Morgan of Friends of Wingate Park alerted the Q of a Stop Gun and Gang Violence Forum being held at Borough Hall on Wednesday April 16 from 2-5 pm. Oh, and if you were wondering, yes, that's the same Vivia Morgan who ran as a Green and Anti-Prohibition candidate for U.S. Congress and Senate, and as the first Jamaican born citizen to run for Senate. Sure it was a longshot, but so's the lottery, and that doesn't stop folks from trying!

Thanks Tim, it's really important that neighbors work to engage the youth in activities to strengthen our community. Together we can.
