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.

Green Roof Tops Neighor's House

You've heard of green roofs. Or "rooves" as I believe the plural ought to is. Did you know that a neighbor on Midwood between Rogers and Nostrand put one in herself, with a little help from her friends, and lived to tell the tale? Read the whole story on Lory Henning's blog. Perhaps if she allows camping up there and rents out the campground we might suddenly find some "studios" available in the neighborhood for less than $1,000 a month!

That is BRILLIANT. Way to go!

This looks beautiful and I understand the benefits involved, but I've always wondered how one maintains such a roof. Does all the extra material have to be removed when the roof eventually leaks?
