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.

R.I.P. Meytex Cafe

One of the borough's true Ghanian "Chop Shops" is no more.

Seems like only yesterday that an SUV rammed into it's glass windows. But that was over a year ago now...

That's terrible! Mercy kept talking about closing and going back to Ghana, but I never thought it would happen. She's one of the neighborhood's great personalities. What happened? (It's "chop bar" by the way.)
