From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part I: Street Justice On McGuinness Boulevard?

The above item comes courtesy of Jay Lombard, who writes:

You should check out this car on McG near Norman. Parked next to PS 34 for weeks (wish I had taken a photo from late Feb for comparison). It has the usual dirt and grime from being parked on the Boulevard for an extended period PLUS our neighbors have seen fit to adorn it with:
1) contents of litter box. Note the clump factor
2) shriveled banana peel
3) remnants of at least two notes requesting removal. Possibly by the principal of the adjacent school?

Besides occupying a prime parking spot in a neighborhood where parking is scarce this vehicle prevents the street from being cleaned (Sweeper operators have left a noticeable trail from repeatedly swerving around it), is an eyesore and, now, is beginning to stink. I’ve placed a call to 311 to report an abandoned car with NH plates. How long until it gets removed and what other items pile on top of it while it sits there are anyone’s guess.

WOW. Methinks I will have to pay this al fresco litter box a visit!

  2. It could maybe be a stolen car that was dumped. That happened to me when I moved to Manhattan in ’97. Some auto repair place found my car on the UES, it was dirty, dented, stuff was stolen out of the trunk, had about 100 parking tickets on it (despite being reported stolen – gotta love the efficient NYPD), and had been there for approximately 4-5 months where no one saw fit to report it, not even the lovely traffic officers who kept ticketing an obviously abandoned car. So a repair shop found it and called me. The insurance co paid to fix it and the guy who ran the shop (former NYPD) had all the tickets cleared since it was reported stolen.

  4. Oh geeez that poor E30. Is it sad I can tell what kind of car it is just from that picture? šŸ™

  6. @Jorsh: What’s sad is what is going to happen once it rains and that merde slurry finds its way in the a/c intake vents. Yummy.

Tell me what you're thinking...
