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.

Hold On To Your Family Jewels At Planet Phitness (NOT Someone Else's)

Word just in from the 71st - don't place your valuables in the lockers while working out. Too easy to bust 'em open, apparently. Everyone the Q's spoken to about Planet Phitness's Phat Albert's location is ecstatic to have a low cost gym nearby. Says local dad E.G. "I like getting in shape. And I like TV. What's not to love?"

Also, Vinny reminds us not to leave our keys in the car. Apparently, so-called "Super Bandits" are able to open the door, enter your vehicle, turn the ignition and drive away. WITHOUT your consent.

Be careful out there guys. It may be the NEW Brooklyn, but it's the same old story.

Last week, I was at the main desk at Planet Fitness when two detectives showed up and asked to talk to a manager about some locker room theft. So...fanny packs for everyone! Lockers are so high-school anyway.

I knew better than to even think of leaving anything valuable in a locker there - just reading the police reports about thefts at the Fulton St and Church Ave locations was enough for me. You get what you pay for.
