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.

DSNY Steps Up Its Game

Is it my imagination or is the Flabenue just a teensy bit cleaner than it was just a few months ago? And how about these new-fashioned trash liners? Despite the trashcastrophes of three-day weekends caused by the likes of Christopher Columbus, it's nice to see sights like this with bagged garbage set to the side once they're full. I'm assuming it's DSNY and not some green urban goblin. Or is there a special program afoot? Must investigate...

Regardless, I would like to thank our district manager for applying some pressure and DSNY for stepping up enforcement. Please keep it up...I know it's just a small step in the right direction, but it really makes a difference. And thanks to any and all business owners who have the difficult job of sweeping the debris in front of their shops, sometimes several times a day. We see you doing it! The Q encourages everyone to say thank-you to those unsung heroes of the Flabenue.

After our dumping friend was caught by Officer Mazzilli from the enforcement division over at sanitation, gave me his word that he would continue to patrol our area and get more attention to our garbage issue (which he has been doing). Ongoing communication with Leticia James (who is on the sanitation committee) has also assisted in a much cleaner community. The community clean-up initiatives have certainly put PLG on the radar of those who can divert resources TO our area instead of away. While I'm sure the district manager has assisted with helping keep our community clean, the majority of the pressure to DSNY came from elsewhere. Additionally, twice a week, a Doe Fund worker can be seen sweeping up Flatbush all the way to Empire, so thanks to the Doe Fund as well.
