NYPD Cracks Down on Boro Park Illegal Parking

BROOKLYN (Hamodia Staff) -

Police on Sunday night unleashed a ticketing blitz to crack down on illegal commercial parking on 21st Avenue near Washington Cemetery. The action came at the request of Councilman David Greenfield and Community Board 12 Chairman Yidel Perlstein.

Greenfield said in a press release that commercial parking along the cemetery not only takes away parking from local residents, but also creates a public safety hazard.

“Unfortunately at this location there is simply a culture of abusing the law,” Greenfield said, “and it’s going to take many more tickets to eradicate this problem.”
