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.

Help for a Family in Need

More info on the tragedy that befell two longtime LPT workers, via Seth K, a/k/a PLOG:

If you have ever enjoyed a meal or a drink at Lincoln Park Tavern, please read on.

Last Sunday, Juan Carlos Luna-Juarez was senselessly murdered as he walked home from his job as a cook at the tavern. His brother Angel was stabbed in the shoulder. Juan came to the country last summer to better his life for himself and his family members. He was only 23-years-old.

Please give to help the family of Juan and Angel to pay for funeral and medical expenses. Anything you can donate will go directly to the family and Youcaring takes no percentage of your contribution.
