Looking For A Parking Permit? Keep Circling.

Our leaders are against Congestion Pricing, which is good. But they're also against parking permits. If you want them, please call or write community board 6, like I did, and tell them why.

From Queens Ledger"

"Although Community Board 6 has already denied their recommendation to congestion pricing, Assemblyman Hevesi, Councilwoman Melinda Katz, and former Assemblyman Michael Cohen spoke out against congestion pricing and residential parking permits."

I got a parking ticket yesterday for not feeding the meter in a snowstorm. They want me to walk a mile from the nearest spot with my son on icy sidewalks and snowy roads. Screw them, they can have the $35. But we need parking permits - we cannot be a park and ride for Manhattan commuters. Street space should go to residents first, not commuters or visitors. We have plenty - PLENTY - of garages and metered spots for them.
