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.

Who Wouldn't Choose To Live In Bubbleland?

The 99 cent store at Woodruff and Flatbush is about to transform into a magical kingdom - Bubbleland. I'm sure lots of nearby residents will be happy to get another coin-op laundry. I'm a fan. An excellent use of the space if you ask me, though I will miss the kind guys at Five Brothers. Just after they closed, a sign was posted saying they'd returned home for a death in the family. And they never returned. Yemen, if I recall.

Thank you Lord! The laundry on Ocean Ave is so overcrowded.

laundromat is useful--especially if it is actually well-maintained. That storefront has been empty so long, I hope this new business actually opens though.
