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.

Arts for Sandy Tomorrow Night

Okay, I highly recommend this awesome Sandy benefit event. Right cause, right organizations involved (see below). How to tie it in to the theme of this blog? A-ha! Got it!

The event was organized by pal Laurie Cumbo, founder and head of MoCADA (Museum of Contemporary African Diaspora Arts). AND, she has announced she's running for Tish James' City Council seat, which she is vacating to run for Public Advocate. AND, this council seat has a proposed change of district that will dip down into PLG if approved (down to north side of  Lincoln, I believe.) And THAT, fair reader, is the tie-in.

Go enjoy yourself and these fine orgs, each of which offers up little chunks of fresh baked arty goodness:
