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.

Tragedy Strikes Fenimore

Fire. Fast and furious. 203 Fenimore. A 64 year-old woman, Patricia Thomas, was caught in the fire and died. 8 firefighters injured. Dreadful, to say the least. A beautiful day in Lefferts, gone horribly wrong.

I feel so terrible for the family/owners. I hope they find out what made the fire get so far out of control so quickly! Eight fire fighters getting injured for such a small building really demonstrates just how crazy that scene must have been.
