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.

Show and Zell
Have you seen him outside the train stations? From the first to second time the Q saw Zellnor Myrie he became noticeably less shy, like a man coming into his own as a candidate. It's an interesting thing to watch - the young idealistic neighborhood guy turning into a potential leader in front of our eyes. Like Josue Pierre, the male District Leader, this is a young fellow with tremendous energy and potential. More on Zell's efforts to distinguish himself from primary opponent Jesse Hamilton here from KCP.
