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.

Ebbets in Context

What's the orientation here? Is that Franklin Ave on the left? And what's the cross street there...Sullivan? The old Malbone?

circa 1920s

Judging from the angle toward Ebbets and the way the one street dead ends, could this be where Sterling meets Washington?

Given the incline, I would guess that's Franklin on the left, with the Consumer's Park Brewery/Golombek Spice warehouse in the distance.

I'm guessing that the photo is taken looking north up Franklin Avenue from the roof of the Brooklyn Beer & Soda / Compound Cowork / Yoga building.

I suspect that the slight angle bend in the sidewalk is the slight bend where Franklin meets Washington meets Sterling, by the Western Beef supermarket.

Just a guess.
