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.

Lefferts House Tour - June 1 - Sell Your Ol' Crapola!

Clarkson gets some love on the tour, yo!

Each year for decades now, the Lefferts Manor Association hosts the PLG House Tour, where-at you get to peak into your neighbors homes and ooh and ahh and snicker and snark. Add to that the numerous stoop sales that take place, and you've got yourself a recipe for good clean fun and musty old board games. All the details are here: Lefferts Manor Dot Org. And you can purchase $20 advance tickets here.

Anyone can join the stoop bazaar. From the LMA mothership comes this request: 

JOIN the stoop and tag sales 12:00 – 5:00, Sunday, June 1st  during the Prospect Lefferts Gardens House & Garden Tour Day. The Maple II Block Association is helping to organize stoop and tag sales that day all over the neighborhood. So far we know of a few Streets that will hold sales.

  • Maple Street between Bedford & Rogers
  • Rutland Road between Flatbush & Bedford
  • Midwood Street between Bedford & Rogers
  • Sterling Street between Rogers and Nostrand
  • Check out the Maple II Block Association table on 151 Maple St. All proceeds go toward founding of block events and projects.\
