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 Crime Blotter

Dynamic Duo Fabri and Martinos are back with another spine tingling account of crime and punishment. Note that the $10 stolen at 713 Flatbush was from ParksideZ deli. Some of my "faves" hang out there night and day. Otherwise, things have been quiet compared to this time last year. Let's hope it STAYS quiet.
