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.

EDP on LR
Folks have been asking after an incident on Lincoln Road, at 101 tween Flatbush and Bedford, a couple nights ago. Seems an EDP (Emotionally Disturbed Person) had barricaded himself into his apartment. Interestingly, and I first heard about this during an incident last year on Westbury Court, the police are required to call in a negotiating team to avoid any crazy violence if at all possible. Thus the big police ruckus, and tons of cars. Usually an ambulance is on the scene as well, so it ends up looking like a murder. Thankfully, this was not the case.
