From the NY Post:
A Queens neighborhood is boiling mad over a broken NYPD promise not to hog parking spots with civilian employees' cars.
Ever since four police units moved into a vacant office building in College Point last month, neighbors say, parking there has become a nightmare.
When the NYPD applied in 2005 to relocate the squads from Queens Village to the 14th Avenue building, the community board insisted on a condition -- that cops park in a lot across the street.
The NYPD purchased 220 parking spots in the lot and vowed that would be ample parking for its 200 or so employees who'd be there at any given time.
But when they finally arrived in October, cops immediately began clogging up the streets with their cars, residents say.
A spokesman acknowledged that the NYPD underestimated the number of spots it needed. He said it was looking for another lot nearby.
