Along Parkside, east of the Q, on towards the Flabenue, you'll see strange white markings on the ground. Graffiti? Only of the best kind.
These are the markings for the tree pits folks. For real trees. We're going to have a ton of trees leading down Parkside towards the park, just part of the whole Parkside Plaza initiative. To the whole committee that's been working on this for a couple years now - wow. You really can move mountains around here. Can't wait to see them in the ground. The trees that is, not mountains.
Let's just be sure, however, that the Parks D doesn't choose to plant Bicycle Trees like this one in front of 225 Parkside:
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.
