Brownstoner, Daily News, and NYT all have articles up on legislation to address illegal curb cuts, which rob all of us community property to benefit selfish individuals. (This? Oh, it was a street space, but now you can't park there, because you'll be blocking my illegal driveway. And did I mention, now I'll be driving across the sidewalk? And paving the yard. K thx bai.)
I testified in favor of several pieces of legislation at Chairman John Liu's Transportation Committee last month that will combat this unsavory practice. Councilman Vincent Gentile has shown great leadership on this issue, and deserves some praise.
