New York City has been in recent years widening the sidewalks which they say will help with safety of pedestrians walking the streets.
But there is a downside to it: It is becoming more and more difficult to find parking in our neighborhood of Crown Heights. Add to that the growing number of residents and year-round visitors.
What can help this situation is drivers being more alert when they are parking their vehicle of any size.
There are numerous times that all I needed was 2 inches to park my car, but the cars were taking up the space of two parking spots.
Please be considerate of other drivers when you park your vehicle. Just leave enough space for your vehicle to go in or out of the parking space.
All it takes is a moment to check if you are parked well, while for the other it can take 10 minutes or more to find another spot.
Thank you for reading this and taking another driver into account when parking your vehicle.
Here are a few photos of how some people park in Crown Heights:
