A fascinating map provided by neighbor Jacob Garchik shows just how quickly we've become awash in new building development. It sure makes me feel popular, given the number of these developments right near my home. Actually, PS92 might be the epicenter. Note the extraordinary power of landmarking. If you zoom in you'll see just how protected is the Lefferts Manor and it's slightly bigger Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District. Not to put to fine a point on it, but just imagine what this could be like if each and every project was required to build means-tested housing?
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.
