New York City Parallel Parking Job: Yeah, It'll Fit…

Follow Nelson

New Yorkers are notoriously self-concerned despite (or perhaps because of) their very close proximity to millions upon millions of neighbors, and this video highlights that spirit well.

Observe, one man eying a parking space that's roughly the same length, give or take a few inches, as his car. In true Kramer-esque New York style, the man decides it'll fit, and proceeds to nudge his way into the spot.

Though "nudge" may not be the word the owners of the Nissan Quest behind or Lincoln Aviator in front would choose after seeing their car rocked back and forth by the invading Camry.

So we put the question to you: too small, or just right? Would you have taken this spot like the guy in the video did?

  2. I see no violations here. Great parking by the driver. Great poop job by the dog, and poop scoop by the dog owner.
