Leave it to Beep Marty to leave with a parting gift. We'd all be fools not to graciously and enthusiastically take him up on it. If you want to see what these things looks like, go take a peek at the tree pit guards on Winthrop Street between Flatbush and Bedford. They look sweet, and trust me you do not want to have to try to raise the money to do this yourself!
All you have to do is to find one or two people on your block to attend one of the two mandatory sessions coming up NEXT WEEK. You'll only be able to get the applications there. Then you'll undoubtedly need to go around and collect a bunch of signatures. But folks, that's not only easy, it's fun. You're not asking for money, just John and Jane Hancocks, and you get to meet a bunch of cool people. Go in a team and it's even more fun. If you have a block association, you're already good to go. And if you don't have a block association, this a perfect excuse to start one.
Man oh Manischewitz!!! This is EFFING AWESOME!!!!!!!
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.
