David Eppley is deep into remaking the trees. Having worked more than a dozen middle-school students, he's been enjoying greeting the kids as he places the "flowers" that they've made. Given insurance issues, Eppley is doing all the application himself on a ladder. A scissor lift, so said the short-sighted insurers, was out of the questions. Better, apparently, to do dangerous work on a much less sturdy piece of equipment. Sigh.
Anyhow, here's where we're at. He'll be working through the weekend, so head on out and say hi.
The Q at Parkside
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.
