With offline donations, we reached our goal for the Flatbush Trees project! IOBY, unlike Kickstarter, does not "take back" the money raised if you don't reach the online goal. But you all came through, including a wonderful gift from Lefferts Manor Association at the wire. Oh, and special thanks to the Fanning family, who was not thanked in the earlier post.
We're moving forward. Look out Flatbush. You're about to get a brilliant colorful makeover.
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.
