Those residents who think it is acceptable to use cones, garbage pails or other objects to reserve parking spaces got a big surprise when the 104 Pct announced action against the illegal practice. On April 26, the 104 swept through Maspeth, tweeting, “NCO Charlie and NYC Sanitation cracking down on residents’ complaint of homeowners using waste bins and cones to reserve parking space. Violators were issued summonses with the help of sanitation.” The precinct assures us that this is just the beginning, so keep objects out of the street.
