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.

Parkside, Rogers to Nostrand. Pretty darn serious.

Amazing! Apparently someone left a pot on a stove, unattended. The authorities believe it began at around 10:40pm. Fortunately, no one was inside. Around midnight, people could smell the smoke inside their houses 2 1/2 blocks southwest of Parkside. Later in the day, Sanitation Department crews were cleaning up the debris along Rogers, south of Clarkson.
