Arena block from east

Block 1120/6th Avenue from north

Block 1129 from south

Incredible number of limos parked in no parking or no standing zones, and idling (Parking and Air Quality Impacts)

Location: 
5th Avenue between St. Mark's and Dean, and streets to Flatbush
When: 
October 13, 2012 - 10:43pm

One set of patrolmen, when asked, did move to request idling drivers to shut motors and one in a bus stop to move, but another officer, a block away, said that he granted permission to at least one driver to park in a No Standing zone "because they have no where else to go". When I told him about the parking lot, he said "but that would cost money!" He said he was OK with the others parking nearby.....

Noted:
