Reader Mail: Free parking for flats?

3:57pm Update: Here’s a letter from another 411 reader:

“Well that didn’t take long.
If the folks in City Hall can’t get onto Hoboken411 someone is certainly monitoring it.
By noon today a couple of guys were working on the caddy behind City Hall, couldn’t help but notice that they looked like city employees. Nice use of our tax dollars.”

4/20/2007:
Here, an anonymous reader wonders if it’s good to have City Hall / Parking Authority friends..

“411,

Love the site, keep up the wonderful work.

I’ve been noticing the same Caddy behind City Hall for the last two weeks in the same exact spot & thought it had gone on long enough that I should share with others the apparent lack of parking regulation enforcement. Seems the car owner has a nice flat rear tire & has been able to park the car on Bloomfield directly behind City Hall for the last two weeks. The owner must have some good friends @ HPU & City Hall since the car has gone without tickets, without a boot, & without being towed. How long to you think your own car would last in a Police Parking Zone?”

I wondered myself about this. It could very well be an unfortunate senior citizen with limited resources and means that the HPD is just offering a “courtesy” to. But at least have it moved someplace private so that spot can be used for an operational vehicle.

Here’s the thing, If this wasnt 2007 and the internet wasn’t around, NOBODY would know or care about this guys car! People would have other, more important things to spend their time on. But now, as we have instant info 24/7, people feel the need to comment on every bit of minutia in this town.
I thought this site was set up to point all all the shady land deals, the backroom politics, the sleazy politicians of the town, not some guy leaving his car unattended for a few days!

why are you so mad about this? Is this person a relative? why do care so much that someone noticed a car parked illegally for 2 weeks and knows (as most of know) if it was anyone that was not connected that they would have paid the price.
