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.

Pop (Up) Art - at the old Mike's International Restaurant

Remember Michael's International up the 'Bush a piece? It's about to become an art gallery for a spell...

Michael's (Mike's to friends and Bob Marvin) restaurant was a fixture of the block north of Lincoln Road for many years. When it closed, there was hope a new joint would take its place. PLG Arts and a collection of locals has stepped into the void in a delightfully quirky way.

Come check out 552 Flatbush, the "pop up" art gallery. The show of works by local artist Brian Fernandes-Halloran goes up on October 13. Its to be followed by a group show...more on that soon!

Mike's International--nothing as fancy as "Michael's" :-)

I'm "curating" [another fancy word] the visual arts part of the group show; watch for our "Call for Artists" on the various lists in a day or two.
