No, the Q's not gone poetic, and that's not the name of an indie-rock band from the Twin Cities (Portland/Bushwick). Flowers on Ocean, with supporting act the Parkside Plaza, is all about daffodils. And love. Love for Ocean. Love for Parkside. Love for thy neighbor. Love. Love. Lovely love.
Neighborhood Hero Amy Musick is at it again (she's actually a public school music teacher, I kid you not.) She and her merry band of mirth makers will be cleaning and winterizing the gazillion tree pits along Ocean and Parkside. With help from the Parkside Committee, expect lots of love. Tree love. Pit love. And mulch, mulch human love to go around too. Oh, and probably one of those gallon jugs of coffee from Dunkin' Donuts.
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.
