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.

Give That Flag a Boost

Are you serious, Boost? I don't know if banners like this are legal, but if they are, don't you have to at least hoist them above eye level? If you don't watch where you're going you might end up wearing a cape. Hmmm, and Halloween is coming up...I'm going to wrap that sucker around my neck and go as Boostman!

When they first put these out, I called 311. Nothing happened. It eliminates over half of the sidewalk. So frustrating.

The guy in the photo is a sad figure. I recognize his clothing and his bag. He's been in the neighborhood all the time we have lived here, 5 years. He's homeless with maybe a shelter, garage, yard or room to sleep in at night then walks to Prospect Park (we often pass him doing so) and hangs out there during the day.
