This photo pretty much sums up the New York attitude towards streets with “No standing” signs posted. Like Boston, there appears to be the same quasi-truce between parking enforcement and car owners on certain streets where the one group looks the other way so long as the second keeps the streets passable. I seem to recall someone telling me a while back that in some cities like Providence, RI, if your tire is touching the curb at all, they will ticket the vehicle, but I can’t seem to find confirmation of this on the Providence city website.
On a side note, now that we’re back from NYC, the issues we’ve been having posting to the site have been resolved. Normal posting schedules will resume tomorrow. Thanks for bearing with us!
