Ever peeked down Parkside Court and said "man, I wonder what's going on down there? I'd go down and check it out, but I can't pretend I was just passing through on my way somewhere else, cuz it's a dead-end street." My inner monkey-voice says that to me-self almost everytime I pass it on the way to and from the Q at Parkside.
It's just another Brooklyn block, right?! Like Westbury and Chester and Beekman (off Flatbush), Parkside Court is a freaky cul de sac caused by...the Q at Parkside. In a densely populated neighborhood like ours, these near deserted streets beckon with a combination of exclusivity and wonder. And Chester court has a bunch of cute Tudor houses. If you have an extra $700,000 lying around, you could swoop one up, and the kids could play in the street, cuz there's never any traffic. I think I even saw a tumbleweed or two rollin' rollin' rollin' down the pavement.
But now I know someone on Parkside Court! Her name is Unitey, and I'm going to ask her to guest blog about it. I won't bug her today because it's Memorial Day. But maybe you know something about Parkside Court - a story, a thought, a nightmare? Please share!
Have a great holiday neighbors!
