"No Parking" Never Looked Happier
Alas, the only upside of forgetting to move the car is that you can keep on forgetting to move it, because you've already got a ticket. And, yes, you can take pleasure in making an impromptu donation to city coffers. Those of you living in the shadow of City College, however, have one more silver -- or, rather multicolored -- lining. You get to be entertained by this pretty and painstaking work of No Parking art.
Scores of multicolored zipties -- perhaps bought in bulk form a police department with a sense of humor regarding its mass-arrest policy -- adorn this pole. While your humble narrator snapped these photos, the sign literally stopped traffic (the gawkers did not drop the 12-pack of beer they were ostentatiously carting about in the middle of the day).
Actually, glancing at the calendar, this coming Monday is a get-out-and-move-the-car day. So, unless you're counting on being cheered up by plastic zipties to the tune of $55, get out and move the damn car.
|It's nice. But it's not "$55 to the MTA/DPT" nice.|
