Prospect Lefferts Gardens
Prospect Lefferts Gardens, in Brooklyn, NY, is a diverse
neighborhood, 20 minutes from Manhattan, with a
wonderful mixture of brownstones, limestone town
houses, tudor style townhomes, and small apartment
buildings, bordering historic Prospect Park, the Brooklyn
Botanic Gardens, and not far from where Ebbets Field
once stood and Jackie Robinson roamed the outfield.
It's also the epi-center of the West Indian American
Day Parade and Carnival, one of NYC's largest.
The PLGshare group was created in November, 2013 by
a group of neighbors interested in setting up a goods
sharing program. They decided to use NeighborGoods
because of its flexible and cost free group tools. Weekly
emails were sent out to the local neighborhood list
serves, Facebook page, and local blog, flyers were
posted, and by early March, 2014, the group had grown
to more than 80 members sharing over 135 goods.
