Whitestone sidewalk blocker
On 2016 149th Street, Whitestone, NY 11357 there's always a white silverish 4 doors Acura sedan with plates FEY-8665 blocking the sidewalk.
This practice has been going on for years now because I walk that way a few times a week and is the same story every time.
I placed a complaint to 311 about this car some three weeks ago and still nothing, the practice continues.
This attached two family is located about half block west from 20th Avenue on 149th Street, it is a pedestrian way for mothers and their school kids attending PS 79 some 6 blocks from this address.
I don't know if this person has some political or police pull to get away with it but this shouldn't be permitted and he or she should be put in the Hall of Shame for their lack of concern towards their fellow citizens which is a very common practice among New Yorkers whom walk, drive and behave only thinking on themselves with total disregard to others.
It takes a disgrace of the magnitude of Sandy to make them react but after a couple of weeks the lesson has been forgotten.
Just imagine an elderly person (somebody's mother or granny) coming from shopping with her cart and having to take the driveway apron or even the street (this street is moderate to high traffic at certain times of the day including MTA buses) or a too enthusiastic child having to do the same risking getting hit by a passing vehicle." - anonymous
