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.

Buyers and Cellars

The old Papa & Sons at Lincoln and Flabenue is taking shape. Landlady Rong Ge noted in our last conversation that the floors were rotten, and sure enough the new owners are tearing up the old wood, as evidence by the photo below. And thank you, Mr. Contractor, for the barrier in front of the open basement first!

The floors were so rotten in Papa's the place actually smelled like mold and wood rot, like to the extent the food absorbed the overall wood-rot odors and tasted like it.
