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.

The Flabenue Has Ears - Shhh - Sneaker Store

Play Kids is no more. Shelley and Carl are probably happier having shed the weekly, monthly and annual struggle to stay in the black. We have the memories, of the little toy store that did.

Guess what's going in that spot? Kids shoe store. No lie.

Cue creepy kids in heels shot:

I just was told that the Staples at Flatbush and Tilden is closing at the end of July. Wonder what will happen with that spot. Anyone hear?

And did anyone else notice that Phat Albert's (and it's "upscale" reboot) is gone? Talk about quiet disappearances.
The neighborhood has lost its best resource for shower curtains and flip-flops.

I hope that high heel kid shoe thing is a joke. Heels cannot be good for little growing feet. It certainly is not good for adult feet.
