… in parking fines according to today's New York Sun:
New York Sun: Brooklyn Heights Leads in Parking Fines: The New York City Police Department has doled out more parking summonses in the Brooklyn Heights area this year than in any other precinct in New York City, an analysis of police statistics shows.
As of May 20, 19,672 parking summonses have been issued in the 84th Precinct, which encompasses the Brooklyn Heights and Boerum Hill sections of Brooklyn. The total is more than double the amount of summonses issued in the majority of precincts in the city, and it surpasses by about 3,000 the number of summonses issued so far in the heavily trafficked Midtown South precinct, which encompasses Times Square and Madison Square Garden.
With about 1,000 more parking summonses issued in the Brooklyn Heights precinct this year compared to the same period last year, the neighborhood has surged ahead of the two precincts in which police handed out the most violations last year, the Kensington and East New York sections of Brooklyn.
Parking summonses in Brooklyn Heights have been on the rise for the past two years, the statistics show, increasing by about 25% during that period. Some experts say the spike is likely the result of a standoff between community members and the police over the alleged abuse of government-issued parking permits in the neighborhood.
