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.

Come On Down!

Used to be the dullest show in town. Then we added a new cast of characters and ratings soared! Copy of draft below. The letter passed the ULURP committee with a vote of 10 for, 1 against, 1 abstention. In business session the Board will finally vote. And yes, there has been public comment. A whole year and a half actually.

One item not to miss in the shuffle: Erv's, the cocktail bar on Beekman, wants to put a few tables out on the sidewalk. Longterm it would seem they want to move into the laundry space as well, lite fare, bigger joint. Could be good for biz, could be tough on neighbors. What think?

See you tonight!

I'll be seated in the back. You'll recognize me.

Say what? In the BACK? Call Pearl Miles and get your butt up to the microphone! And speak with your voice, not your butt. That's gross.

We need your rational perspective.

I do not know that you can afford my fee.

There's no mention of the letter to DCP on the agenda?

My guess is that it's going to be considered under item "d" of the Business Session (committee reports).

All of that sounds reasonable except the bit about "we are confident that we could collaboratively work achieve what's in the best interest of the community. This can be accomplished with discussion and dialogue..." I admire your optimism about such cordial proceedings.
