The Q at Parkside
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.

Mister Softee Song Has Lyrics - Proof Herein
This is likely the last weekend Mr. Softee and its many knock-offs makes the rounds...only a few are still hanging in at this point. The recent trend towards organic grassfed artisanal cultured gelatos etc has not lessened the simple pleasures of this ridiculously catchy jingle and the alarmingly soft cool, but not cold, confection plopping from the sugary spigot. There is nothing pretty about a Mr. Softee, and yet there is nothing more beautiful. See you next summer.
