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.

Breaking Story: Rooster on Ocean

Neighbor Maddie sent this from in front of her building on Ocean 'tween Parkside and Woodruff:

WTF, y'all?

You've never seen a rooster in Brooklyn? I remember when I first moved to Park Slope in the late 80s (Degraw Street between 4th and 5th) someone had a rooster in their backyard who would crow at the crack of dawn every morning.

the mystery surrounding this rooster is its location and early morning schedule: an iron clad shrub space in front of a 55+ unit apartment building (btwn parkside & woodruff) at 8:30 am. abandonment? forced relocation from a happy backyard rooster spot?
