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.

Nostrand and Flatbush Merchants Associations - Upcoming Events

The Nostrand Avenue Merchants Association is holding it important elections and a quarterly meeting on Thursday near Midwood. Lindiwe Kamau of the wonderful Expressions In Ceramics will be glad to see you I'm sure. There's a lot going on on the 'Strand, including the delayed but soon-coming Select Bus Service along the avenue. And don't forget Lindiwe's been in the news about security cameras, story here. Having ridden these SBS buses in Manhattan a few times, I can assure you this is a very, very cool development for those traveling over-the-surface. I totally dig the European style everybody-gets-on-at-the-same-time-through-any-door-honor-system-with-roving-ticket-checkers attitude. Brilliant, and working great on the Island City, so why not here?

And don't forget that FEPMA's doing its annual Street Fair on August 5th. Colorful Circussy poster here:
