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.

Anyone know what the police activity was on the East side of Lincoln Rd and Flatbush yesterday afternoon?

Tim, any commentary on this meeting to share? I am sure that it was disappointing that none of the precincts were present.

it's all good! and anyone who's signed up over the last couple years for updates will get one from Rebecca Fitting today. If anyone wants to be part of the "working group" please send me an email at timothyjamesthomas@gmail.com

I'll write more in a bit. My office is moving and I'm pretty overwhelmed at work. Going to sit down at the keyboard and talk that and zoning over the weekend.

Oh, and the working group is committing to meeting quarterly and developing stronger relationships with D.A., electeds, mediation groups AND the three precincts. If we stay committed, we'll get stuff done. I'm sure of it.

Sounds dope. Thanks for the update. Good luck with the move.
