Diagonal Parking in Manhattan Street
This street in the East 20's caught my eye right away. I wonder why it is the exception to the rule...of course, it provides more parking for residents, but I wonder if it also does not have something to do with its being not-that-far from Peter Cooper Village and Stuyvesant Town ( which of course started off as middle income housing and are now upper middle, with the kinds of people who can easily afford an automobile in Manhattan)...
I guess I could go down in the area again ( right now it is a little too cold for me to be out doing much photography...it would not be impossible, just uncomfortable--I mean, if there were snow out there, which is becoming rarer and rarer in NYC in the winter, I would be out there all right--)
Find out from locals what the deal is with the parking...but for the moment it will have to remain one of our little local mysteries.
