Our man in the City Council and candidate for NYC Comptroller David Yassky is coming out swinging for parking permits according to WCBS-TV. In Marcia Kramer’s report a couple of Brooklyn Heights residents are featured – Ida Guterman and Nance Kass. [see video here]
WCBS-TV: “We’re never going to make it so there’s a space on the street for everybody who lives in New York City, but we can make it a little easier in some of the high density neighborhoods,” Yassky said.
Yassky’s plan would allow people to park on their neighborhood’s streets from, say, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. with a permit … for a fee, of course.
“It is impossible to find on-street parking,” Yassky said. “People circle for half an hour, 45 minutes looking for a space.”
