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.

From Five Brothers 99 cent store, to Bubble Land. And in between, we saw the ancient sign under the banner that showed this was once a corner drug store. Probably from the '50s I'd say. Remember when that note hung on Five Brothers saying "went home to deal with death in the family?" Home was apparently Yemen, a country ravaged by war. The lives being led by the people all around us are so intense and varied. Never ceases to amaze. This is the promise of the experiment called NYC.

Flatbush at Woodruff.
