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.

So Many Town Halls - Tonight, For Instance

And the Town Halls keep on coming. This one, again on affordable housing, will have the Mayor leading the show. Some people forget, particularly those who rail against the volunteer Community Boards, that it's the Mayor and his administration who wield the real power in this town. Seating starts at 6 for a 7pm show. Geez, you'd think Justin Bieber was leading this thing! A certain element in the audience will definitely calm down if Hizzoner starts crooning

"Is it too late now to say sorry? Cuz I'm missing more than just your votey."

(FYI, that lame gag works a teensy bit better if you pronounce "sorry" the way someone from Winnipeg or Bemidji, MN might, with the long "o.")
