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.

Local Gentry Passes

Your neighbor Carmen posted this note on the Happy to pass it on...

Dear neighbors,

I'm saddened to share with you that Mr. Delroy (also known as Boo or Mr. D), owner of the Unique MiniMart right next to 65 Fen, passed away this weekend. Mr. D has been a part of this community for almost 20 years and, during the warm months, was best seen grilling some tongue-tingling chicken right outside his store. If you've attended any wine tastings at 65 Fen, you have probably tasted Mr. D's amazing food.

Information on the wake/funeral will likely be posted in front of the store.
