Double Vision Looking Back 20 Years on a Neighborhood-Honored Tradition
By Caitlin Hawke
The one from the vault below by past editor of the Block Association newsletter Jock Davenport is about parking challenges. The piece is now over 20 years old but given new talk about parking garages, paying for street parking, and congestion pricing, I thought it might resonate.
Today, parking spaces cost considerably less than rent on a studio apartments (at least in this community), but much of this sounds rather familiar. It's the time honored dance of alternate side of the street parking.
Some of you know the ASSP dance all too well, crosswords and coffee in hand or maybe it's Words with Friends. You manage to work your schedule around this very NYC ritual. Enjoy it while you can.
Just not this coming Thursday, May 10, when rules are suspended for Ascension!
