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.

Crime Blotter

Thanks to Nicole Fabri for making talking with Vinny Martinos of the 71st Precinct and compiling a list of crimes for the PLG sector of the precinct (remember, just a portion of the overall stats). We really need to get one going for the NE 70th precinct as well. Anyone feel like reaching out to them? I know one of the guys is Dominick Scotto over there at 718-851-5556, and he seems quite decent and friendly. They're always telling us that the more the public knows about the types and patterns of crimes the better prepared we all are to help prevent them. Cell phone swipes continue to dominate.

On with the ghoulish facts...
