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.

Vendors Wanted For 1st Annual Parkside Empire Street Fair
For years, the Flatbush Avenue street fair was a dismal affair. Poorly run, it often came down to a lot of noise but no fun. With a new grassroots merchants association ascendant, things might be much different. They're experimenting with a smaller swath of real estate as well, making it more compact. All good. Thx to Shelley at Play Kids for forwarding the below, lotsa questions you might have if you want to be a vendor. That could be anyone with a product or message! And table! Send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org for an application and more information. And a street fair is happening this weekend as well, below Parkside. The poster is below the Parkside-Empire info.
