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.

Phat Albert to Get Phit

It's really happening. Planet Phitness, as reported to you on the Q, is coming to the Phat Albert's second floor. Now I'll have an opportunity to turn my abs from pony keg to six-pack.

Any ETA on their opening?

I am very glad the gym will open. But that large Planet Fitness sign on top of the bakery building, above the clock, is an eyesore. When I first saw it, I felt like I'd been punched in the jaw.

No pain, no gain?
