It's my white whale.
Dang I hate the trash at 713 Flatbush, the NE Corner of the Flabenue and Parkside, ParsideZ Deli. Heck I can't stand that whole eastern block from Flat to Win and the half dozen "chums" who help make it one of the most criminal blocks in the neighborhood (charts show an unusually high number of crimes take place there, with a bunch of notorious apartments, one that was raided by the narcs just recently). I've repeatedly told Martinos and Fitzgibbon of the 71st just how much a problem this area is, and they assure me they're "on it." Would be nice to see cop out there once in awhile.
But the trash. Man. Here's some pics from yesterday.
I, Clarkson FlatBed, hereby pledge to do something about it, so help me Allah. The deli has been warned - I told 'em I'm ready to throw the book at them (yeah, like I have any real authority) if they don't clean up their act. They're not responsible for the trash, but they are legally responsible to keep it clean to 18 inches into the road. They benefit from "location location location," so they need to step it up.
Please join me by politely reminding them, for the sake of the whole neighborhood, to keep the garbage in check. Until we get a BID around here, no paid employee is going to go around picking up after us. And y'all who throw your household trash int that bin? There's a special receptacle in Hell awaiting you!
The Q at Parkside
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.
