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.

If You View Just ONE Video on YouTube today...

Make it this one...

The Death Trap Intersection of Ocean and Flatbush

A lot of folks have told me they read about the effort to fix this intersection, but few actually followed the link and pressed "play" on the video. If you call the Q your hometrain, this is ESSENTIAL viewing, though names have been changed to project the ignorant.

And if you're "mad as hell and not going to take this anymore," then we'll see you at the below forum:
