The Q may have gone fishin', but that doesn't stop him from hearing tales of oddness in the 'hood.
Like...the long blue wall along the Duane Reade? Suddenly beige? Why? That blue was the only thing saving that wall from not being blue. With the Berlin Wall fencing on the roof, it must now truly resemble Sing Sing.
But more ominous is the fact that Pioner took down the flags representing many of the Caribbean islands in favor of many of the old red, white and blue.
Huh. Wouldn't want to read to much into that one now would you...

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.
