This is going to sound irritatingly like a terrible Seinfeld episode, but what is the deal with parking in Brooklyn...
Sweet Jesus... Let's start over.
I am fucking amazing when it comes to parallel parking. I was already good bombing around KC in a Honda finding all the hidden free parallel parking — esp after the Power and Light takeover downtown.
However, I have the added advantage of driving around NYC in a Mini Cooper so I can wedge the SOB into some really tight spots everywhere.
On the night before the street sweepers come through the neighborhood the streets are like a hellish game of musical chairs to make way. Nobody wants to wake up at 6 a.m. to move their car for the sweeper.
Above is my result from last night.
That is a pen. The back bumper was just as close, but the owner of the car came out and started questioning why I was taking pictures and setting a pen between our bumpers... It got real awkward.
