(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.

Shirley Chisholm To Keep an Eye on The Q at Parkside
Amanda Williams and Olalekan Jeyifous have been chosen as the designers of the Shirley Chisholm memorial to be constructed at our (yes OUR) entrance to the Park. I've written a lot of micro-stories over the years, and let me tell you, this ain't one of them. Big. Transformative. I mean, imagine all the tourists who will eat at OUR McDonalds? Seriously this is great news, and of the five finalists this was the clear best choice. Read all about it in the Old Gray Lady.
