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 Barber Tree

There are few things more iconic than the barber pole. When done old-school, the shimmery red and white cylindrical sculpture evokes a bygone era of moonpies, ice cream sodas and peppermint candies.

Right here in Parkside, Nelson and the good folks at Nelson's barbershop {248 Parkside)have added a new twist to an old classic! Ladies and gentlemen, the barber tree!
