Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Fail

I heard an interesting bit of neighborhood gossip about this phenomenon. Apparently one of our local car services makes it a practice to shove cardboard into these meters so as to render them inoperative (and avoid having to pay money to park). Given how many “failed” meters I see on Manhattan Avenue between Green and Huron Street on any given week I would not rule this out as being implausible. Is this crass destruction of public property? Yes, absolutely. But out of the realm of possibility? Nope, not by a long shot.
