  • Contractors

    In this renovation-happy climate, I frequently see contractors jockeying for parking spaces on West 22nd. Today at about 4, a local delivery guy and a contractor got into it over a spot in front of 316. The contractor made an aggressive move and took the spot, but seriously damaged a VW Passat in the process. In trying to separate his van from the parked car, he gouged the front quarter panel, and punctured the driver's side front tire.

    As it happens, a meter maid was writing a ticket across the street, and when witnesses appealed to her to write a report, she replied that it wasn't her job to do so (!). The whole crew at 323 came out to have a laugh at the proceedings. Must be part of the reason that renovation job seems interminable...

    I think the van driver left his info for the owner of the Passat. If said owner needs an eyewitness account, feel free to contact me.

    You're kidding! That's nuts! I'm glad to hear the van driver left a note though. That's really outrageous that the meter maid couldn't be bothered to lift a finger. They do work for the police dept right? Couldn't she at least have the authority to get the information from the van driver and then call in a *real* cop and give it to him? This city's really out of control.
