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.

Stanchions To The Rescue

From Elizabeth C over in the heart of Caledonia comes this delightful picture:

According to Park employees, someone stole this rental car, tried to make a getaway through the Parade Grounds but got stuck. Finding no way around the stanchions, the thieves left the wheels with keys in the ignition. How they got the keys, and got INTO the Parade Grounds in the first place, remains yet another great Caledonian mystery. Why they panicked and didn't just back up and find another manner of egress...a sudden surprise surge of scruples maybe? Curfew?

and it was FINALLY gone this morning. Which I could say that about the swanky abandoned mattress in front of UMMA's playground, which has been there for a week!
