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.

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.

What in the Sam Hill?! That's a first. And hopefully last. I was wondering what that was about when I walked by in the early morn. Maybe somebody needed the insurance money. SMDH...

Last year one or two cars got torched on Lincoln Rd. So unfortunately it's not the first time this has happened.

Yeah? WOW. But, I meant on this block specifically. Wild.
