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.

New Pavement In Front of Q/B at Caton

In Caledonia, we take the time to thank the Lord for small miracles. Take the plaza in front of the Q/B at the Caton entrance. Is this a bizarre Southwestern map motif I see? Or just a plain vanilla patch? Either way, you're that much less likely to trip and sue. Thanks MTA, for even the slight gestures of support. And speaking of Pavement, yes, one-fifth of the indie-legend is now your neighbor. So, no, that wasn't a mid-90s CMJ hallucination you had whilst scarfing a slice at Gino's.

Which fifth?

Appropriately enough in a Dancehall-lovin' neighborhood - the bassman of course.
