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.

Eve-Lyn Williams - A True Neighborhood Hero

The Q first met Eve-Lyn (pronounced how it looks) Williams 7 years ago. I attended some meetings at 265 Hawthorne to watch her feistily shepherd a wary apartment building through a process to becoming a limited-equity co-op, owned by rent-stabilized tenants, who had to put aside their fears and jump into an arrangement that many longtime renters didn't fully trust.

Congratulations Eve-Lyn. Congratulations 265 and all its OWNER residents. A big victory for the people, and a potential way forward for renters in long-neglected buildings.

The whole story here.

From State Sen Jesse Hamilton's Office. That's Eve-Lyn with the ever-colorful hair
