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.

Don't Miss This Opportunity To Put Your Street Tree In Jail

I'm not going to mince words. That street tree in front of your house has been very, very bad. It should be placed behind bar. An iron bar. And for a limited time, VERY limited time, you can put him and his whole no-good green-wearing gang, you know those "shady" characters hanging out on the block, every few meters from each other, you can put them all in solitary, for free, just by signing a petition against 'em. But you must act right now.

A representative from your block must attend a workshop either tomorrow night from 6-8 pm or Thursday from 1-3 pm at Brooklyn Borough Hall in order to get the application. Only one person needs to go to the workshop to the get the piece of paper, but the app can't be submitted by one person for one tree. It is intended as a full block initiative, and you will need to get signatures from enough people on your block, both sides, in order to process the application.

Folks, it doesn't get any easier than this. We don't want to hear any complaints when the tree pit guards go in! (okay, okay probably a year or two from now, but still...)

Here's the flyer.
