If the shenanigans at Community Board 9 make you feel there is nowhere to turn to engage the City, Diana Richardson (one time CB9 Treasurer now Assemblywoman) devised a brilliant alternative - Civic Minded. Show up today if you can, say hi to Diana, and see where you can fit in, or just get some basic questions answered. This is the kind of radical rethinking of the old ways that fresh faces like Richardson can bring to our neighborhoods.
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.
