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.

LL Cool J and Mavado Shoot Vid at Pepa's saw the scene on Flatbush at Woodruff this afternoon? What was your first thought? Then your second? Then your...1,425th? I guarantee you didn't guess it right off. Now, for number 1,426...

Inside the trailer in front of Pepas

Yep. That was LL Cool J shooting a video with Dancehall sensation Mavado. Mavado (what's with all this "gully" stuff? these days everyone has like 10 alter egos) is a real big deal if you like the modern reggae. LL Cool J is a real big deal if you...were born before 1970. Put 'em together and you've got dinner at Pepas with a crowd of about 100 fans and extras.

I'll be honest, my first instinct was shooting. My second was demonstration. My third was...Anderson Cooper was shopping at the Gem. Shoot me a note and tell you about numbers 4 thru 1,425.
