No, the above is not a headline from The Onion. Our man in the City Council, David Yassky, is rallying support for permit parking via a Facebook group. The group’s description:
I am tired of non-residents taking all the parking spaces in my neighborhood, making it impossible for residents to find a place to park. No one should use my block as a parking lot to go somewhere else.I support the efforts of David Yassky and other local elected officials to bring a residential permit parking system to Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, and I want the Mayor and the Department of Transportation to get on board!
However while not THE David Yassky, we found ourselves more taken with the sound advice this Facebook group offers: DAVID YASSKY SHOULD STOP SINGING STROKES SONGS AND SHOULD LISTEN 2 YUNG JOC.
