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.

LMA's "Echo" Out Now (Four Shot)

I'm ceaselessly amazed at what an extraordinarily high-quality paper comes out of humble Lefferts Manor each quarter. Milford Prewitt and gang always provide a stellar product at a super price. Zip. That's right folks. For the price of a breath of air you can help yourself to a heaping helping of neighborhood news. Click here or see below. Where on earth else could you get a steady diet of Lefferts tidbits for free? Beats me.

(Damn. As I wrote that about 8 shots rang out on, I think, Lenox. Better throw on some pants. Not you, me.)

(Okay, there were four shot, tons of police. Anything you know will be more than I do. Please Share.)

Hi Tim,

Thanks for posting this. Many of us dont receive this news letter. Im not sure if they only mail it to homeowners but would you mind posting this each time it comes out?

The Echo is distributed door-to-door, by volunteers, to all Lefferts Manor houses and several other blocks, for which volunteers can be found. Stacks of this free paper can usually be found at neighborhood businesses, like Tugboat, and PDFs are on line.

Thanks a lot, Tim. I'm blushing over here. Milford

You needn't blush Milford; you do a far better job editing the Echo than I ever did and fully deserve praise.
