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 driver of this horseless buggy didn't just park in the intersection of Parkside and Parkside Court to pick up some lozenges at the deli - he/she/it considered it his/her/its right to park in crosswalk for the better part of the day, presumably because of the inconvenient snow drifts.
At the time this photo was taken, the lady in the wheelchair and the old guy with a "Brooklyn Cart" of laundry were not amused. Nor was I for that matter; and that's when I confirmed my longheld belief that license plate numbers, cell phones and moral indignation make the most excellent of bedfellows.
