Moses Fried, the owner of somewhat-soon-to-be-up-and-running long-stay hotel at 205 Parkside, was forced to take down the signage at his dirty little hotel, the Lefferts, up at 127 Lefferts Place at Classon in Bed-Stuy. Jonathan Butler of Brownstoner lives nearby and has been "on the case" for nigh on five years now. Here's the latest from his blog: Brownstoner on Moses.
If Mr. Fried is feeling thrifty, he could just lug his old sign over to Parkside Avenue, affix it to his new brothel, and call it Lefferts as well, referring this time to the neighborhood rather than the cross-street of its last home.
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.
