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.

Small Business Dreamers: Here's Your Chance

This little shopping strip on Bedford 'tween Parkside and Clarkson has always struck me as undervalued. The buildings themselves are pretty cute, and the rents have got to be nearly half of Flatbush. Something could nicely compliment Gandhi, the Indian restaurant we choose when the idea of cooking makes us want to poop in our shoes. Get a load of this:
I for one won't miss the chicken/ice cream/feelawful place. Can't say I ever visited the Dry Cleaners. Luckily, the Wet Cleaners is still packing 'em in noon and night and will likely stay put, meaning a business that caters to people in-between loads could be JUST the ticket. Actually, Mike's Pizza seems to do well in that regard. Maybe a detergent store?

As you can see I'm clearly not cut out for the entrepreneurial life. But if you or someone you know is looking for space and has an idea that doesn't need the intense street traffic of Flatbush...this could be just the spot.
