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.

Please Support the Flatbush Tenant Coalition

 As the Q has oft said, the real work of keeping Brooklyn affordable is being played out in the trenches - one building at a time - organizing tenants to know their rights and use the system to fight greedy, unscrupulous landlords. Around here, the Flatbush Tenant Coalition, led by Aga Trojniak, is one of the groups leading the charge. Support them today in Ditmas, or if your Sunday is booked, please donate here.
Join Seth Borgos, Steve Kest, Bertha Lewis, and Matt Ryan for a drink at Bar Chord this Sunday to support the Flatbush Tenant Coalition and help preserve affordable housing in south Brooklyn!  

Sunday, Dec. 7th
3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Bar Chord
1008 Cortelyou Rd (between Stratford Rd. & Coney Island Ave.)
Brooklyn, NY
(Take the Q train to Cortelyou Station, walk 4 blocks west)
