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.

The Heat and Hot Dogs

Always sad to miss this one. (Early August I'm in Vermont, though don't get any ideas. My subletters are 8' tall and black belts in Karate. Not to mention those starving German Shepherds.) For some reason these posters just make me smile. I think it's the mash of fonts and graphics, particularly the crazy hot dogs. I love it when hot dogs get that curved happy smile treatment. When do hot dogs do that? Is that regionally specific? German, maybe? My hot dogs are always strictly horizontal. But seriously this is a good time, and a chance to hang out casually with some of the 70th's finest.
