Seeds in the Middle informs the Q that due to a delay in the EBT machines, the Farmer's Market in the Q plaza at Ocean and Parkside will begin on Friday the 11th of July. It is hoped that MTA will have removed their makeshift work camp by then. And yes the Q is open, running southbound. And despite the Manhattan Q not running this past weekend, there's no scheduled maintenance next weekend.
The Q is loving the Q renovation - safer, less leaky. Though the paint job is unbelievably bad, and they did almost nothing to replace crumbling tile and crappy doors.
I'm quite convinced that the painting department is where you get mothballed at MTA when the union discovers your drinking problem.
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.
