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.

Of Doors and Drywall

No, that's not the name of the latest novel from Bob Vila. That's what's happening at 205 Parkside. In a further sign that Parkside Avenue is approaching some sort of seismic reckoning, ACTUAL work began today on the property. I took a peek inside, before being asked for credentials. From the look of the cheap materials and cheap day labor, Moses "Mike" Fried knows how to make a quality crackden.

All kidding aside, it is nice to see SOMETHING happening. The doors being loaded into the building were metal firedoors, so I couldn't get a sense of what type of materials he's going to use. Anyhoo, there you have it. (Oh, and Rudy's gettin' mad busy on the Parkside Ave Improvement Network, which is NOT, I repeat NOT, called P.A.I.N.)
