I expect another rollicking meeting tomorrow, and with the "rock star" of the anti-development movement, former City Planner Tom Angotti, on hand to bash his old colleagues at the Department of City Planning, you never know where it will lead. (What did they do over there, give him nonstop wedgies? And what, is he like "on tour" or something?) It's great to see people meeting and organizing and engaging the City rather than passively watching and gawking. The Q's hat is off to his parallel neighbors on Lenox. I hear this is a great group, and if you live in the vicinity, please do join them at the mighty Lenox Road Baptist Church at Nostrand.
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.
