(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.

111 Clarkson Becomes 520 Parkside To Avoid Disturbing Poltergeist
From the Haunted House of Clarkson to the Princely Pride of Parkside, I give you builder Seth Brown's ode to post-ISIS modernity:
Actually looks strikingly familiar to some older buildings on Lenox. Again though, I'm deeply troubled by how thin are the people in all these renderings. Just ONCE I'd like to see a chubby person featured. Probably a good move to keep race out of it by making these animated folks entirely, um, white.
About 50 units in all, I'd expect a net gain of about 100 people. Or 99, since the ghost of 111 has moved to East New York somewhere. Cheaper haunts.
