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.

A Haunted Hawthorne Halloween

Need a pumpkin tout de suite? Head on down to Kings County Nurseries, where I found this mountain of kitsch:

If you haven't been to KCN, they're just down the road a piece, on New York Avenue at Rutland.

And when the heck are we gonna hear about the Halloween Trick-or-Treat safe walk? Anybody know anything? We got the adorable peacock outfit and everything! I'm going as a middle-aged blogger dad...

One word of advice if you have a wee one...don't ever, ever, EVER go to Park Slope on Halloween eve. It's a nightmare, literally.
