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.

On Eve of Crime Forum, Murder on Parkside Court

This just in...

Murder near 205 Parkside.

Was the table ever better set for crime? Thanks Mr. Fried. Thanks gunman. Thanks Daniel, for the tip. See you tomorrow night.

PLGNA meeting

: An officer from the 71st told me there were a hundred people at a party on Parkside Court last night (Tuesday? what's up with that? are they running a speakeasy over there?) A man walked up to the victim and shot him point blank. And somehow, among all those people, they couldn't nail the guy or trace him. Really?

About two weeks ago a gunman came on Winthrop and fired about 7 shots... Police never even responded...
