If you're into candy, tree-lined streets and spooky costumes (like the Boostman outfit I'm planning to wear that I mentioned in my last post) you'll want to plan to enjoy the precinct-sponsored Safe Path Walk that happens each Pumpkin Day. It's such a great time for the kids, and the fact that the streets are closed to traffic makes it all the better and saferer. And if your house happens to be on the route, better stock up on Kit Kats now! (the Q's all-time favorite).
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.
