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.

Boo! Haunted House Becomes Pricey Apartments

To be honest, I'm not sure what I think anymore. Neighborhood stakeholders have thumbed their noses at creating affordable housing - you know below market rent stabilized? And along with the mad dash to develop the hyper desired Lefferts Flatbush (LF) area, what happens? Best use of current zoning. "Luxury" units. Topping out. Density. Blah, blah, blah. Here's Clarkson, looking east past Bedford. Seen Bedford lately? Oy.

Not so long ago it was the Haunted House of Clarkson. No one will ever know, except on blogs and in nightmares. For some, they're the same thing.
