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.

This Sunday: 2:30 PM and 6:30 PM Neighborhood Mtgs

Not since the Police's fifth and final studio album has there been so much Synchronicity in the air. Just a couple days after Rudy on Winthrop and I announced a meetup at ICH to discuss the disaster that is Parkside Avenue, Carmen Castillo-Barrett and others whipped up a frenzy around the trash and illegal dumping on Flatbush Ave. And so, earlier in the day this Sunday, State Senator Eric Adams is holding a fact-finding mission at the corner of Hawthorne and Flatbush. See Carmen's note to the Lefferts ListServe below, and my previous post about the 6:30 ICH mtg.

Senator Adams has asked me to help organize a team of community members in addition to his staff (and himself) to walk around the neighborhood talking to people and handing out information regarding illegal dumping and how to file a complaint in order to stop it.

If anyone is around this Sunday at 2:30 pm we will be meeting at the notorious corner of Hawthorne and Flatbush.

This is a great opportunity to turn our community outrage into action and show those who are dumping on our neighborhood that we will not tolerate their actions any longer. I look forward to seeing some of you then!

Heads-up~ I just received word from the Senator's office that the time has been changed to 2:30pm.
