A Q-comrade sent a wonderful architectural design for the much ballyhooed residential project at 626 Flatbush. Lest I be accused of going all Orson Welles on y'all, let me add that this is ONLY a student project and not an actual rendering of the "War of the Worlds" project to be:
This vision of a vertical neighborhood comes to you from one Alejandro Garrido Perez, who imagines a truly space-age cum Brooklyn-age monster structure. Here's the rest of his design.
In related fantasy news, word has it a glamorous tapas style eatery will move into the commercial space at 626, designed and co-owned by famed restauranteur and jerk lover Danny Meyer. The chef will be Peppa, and the Michelin-starred establishment will be known as Danny and Peppa's*. It will look something like this:

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.
