However, not everyone was happy when the vehicle was towed by the city. “That car is a staple in this community,” said a neighbor that goes by the name of Jake. “Those who gawk at it and want to get rid of it aren’t real Brooklynites."


So for some in Brooklyn, apparently junk cars parked on the street are a staple of the community. I'll never understand yankees.

Yet I leave a seasonal car stored on the street and it gets towed in a heartbeat!

“It’s a safety hazard,” one woman who moved into the neighborhood of Prospect Park three years ago told Daily News. “My children walk by it every day. It needs to go away.”

I liked the woman who was worried about her kids. I had to laugh at that. I guess cars can just jump out at you if you're not careful or something--but newer cars are better behaved.

They don't have front yards to park cars in like the rest of us.
