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 View Of the Nabe From 626

A reader sent this map from the Parkline website, noting that all but 16 apartments appear to be rented. Really? I guess we'll see.

Here's the selective map they include with their promotional materials:

Once again, as Mr. Spock might say..."fascinating."

Not surprised at all it's renting so quickly. Downtown had the same thing with it's first few buildings, they sold out completely extremely quickly. Now almost all the buildings are only mostly occupied with apartments coming for rent all the time.
This is the first building for our neighborhood, so it has all the bonuses of downtown buildings but in a (arguably) better area due to the park, culture, etc. It's also roughly on price for a brand new high-rise apartment in Brooklyn (as messed up as that may be)

Nice to see that a map like this got made, even if it took a developer to do it. Would be nice if usage rights could be shared with whoever runs the business district so that it could be updated over time and expanded to help promote more neighborhood businesses.

Add a pic of Lowly Worm and Huckle Cat and this is a map of Richard Scarrey's Busy Town.
