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.

In Memory of Ed Koch, A Car Torching Worthy of the Late '70s
This, last night, from outside the Q's window. Sorry to have missed the flames for the video (got to keep the camera by my bed). The orange spikes were pretty spectacular in the frigid air. The firemen were very professional, very quick. We are lucky to have such brilliant protectors. FDNY 1, Prometheus 0.
