Bottom line is that wherever there is something to drive to the parking is tight.  :P

A day of work getting it back from the towing company?

Part of weighing the cost process includes knowing the likelihood of being towed. If you park at a bus stop you can be towed soon after, if you park at a pump or alternate side, not.

Yes. Sometimes in Brooklyn, you have to be lucky just to find an illegal spot. :(

A neighbor of mine has "reserved parking" at the pump!

(BH I have a private driveway)

Not sure when the last time you've been in NYC, but mass transit has changed a lot in the last few months for noticably Jewish people...
On the B11 and B68? Or just the F train?

He didn't get the old line of "you can park wherever you want, it's just a question of how much it will cost you"?
I guess he doesn't value his mom enough, I have a membership with the city in Brooklyn, costs approximately $3,000 annually and I park anywhere I want. Although double parking is not my speed. Now with the meter app it's a bit cheaper. Manhattan = TOW!

There is some good services out there that tries to fight your tickets, if they loose they pay it with your CC, so you don't get booted.

We have these in my city - http://www.cityofwhiteplains.com. Essentially these cans enable robotic garbage pickup, so that you essentially need less personnel and can go faster.

Although I am not sure how this might work in places like NYC where it's likely that there are a lot of parked cars blocking the curb.

Of course, these have been around for decades.

Yeah - I wonder how much NYC might stand to save with these.

the biggest joke is that there will be two options-35gl and 45gl. That's about 2-3 kitchen garbage bags. If I lived in NYC with 2x/week pickup, we would need at least 6-8 of those cans on a normal week for my family of 8. Yomtov time would be way more.
