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.

Latest Hipster Band - TV In the Park

I kid you not, this was the scene at 10AM near the Drummer's Grove:

Besides being a great band name, you gotta admit it's pretty ballsy to leave a full-on television in the park, 1000s of feet from the nearest outlet or cable-box.

Speaking of ballsy, how about this sign I saw yesterday morning on the way to work?
This same dude was posting handwritten flyers on traffic light poles (I KNOW you've seen them) but I guess he wasn't getting the attention he deserved. I'd have suggested a bold Arial font rather than a gargantuan handwritten cardboard sign, but what the hey, the guy's got cojones (by the way, it's not spelled cajones. That would mean a set of drawers - the furniture, not the pants).
