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.

Big Fire on Martense - All Safe

Big fire broke out at 70 Martense, with dozens of firefighters on the scene. If anyone has info please share!

I'm in awe of this guy who rushed in and saved the kids trapped inside, busting windows and running in to find the children. Holy cow, what a crazy story of real life heroism! Read about Clancy Winchester in DNA Info.

A friend sent this picture of the damage.

Lives were saved, even the dog. God bless the FDNY and Clancy "the Man" Winchester!
