Private driveway ordinance???

I always thought there was a city law against unauthorized public parking in the space directly in front of an entrance/exit to a private home's driveway ( i.e. blocking access to it by the homeowners and household's visitors
own vehicles).

That is happening more than I can ever remember, in front of my residence and I want to put a stop to it. Before I copy the license plate number and turn it over to the police for ticketing (and or towing), I want to inform any new people on the block of my intent so they have fair advance warning. Therefore, I would like to know the exact city ordinance (if there is one). I have looked, but cannot locate anything.

If anyone out there knows, I would be obliged if the ordinance was posted here. You would think common sense and neighborly courtesy would be enough, but even "neighbors" these days don't often do the right thing....

Thanks for any assistance in locating such an ordinance.

  • Somebody has blocked a car in front of your driveway. You don’t know what to do then call Xtreme Towing Company NYC for fast and reliable removal. It is your legal and social right and nobody can surpass your freedom and personal choice.

  • What about all the ignorant people who block the sidewalk with their cars, forcing little kids to walk in the street and possibly get hit by a car. I'm sure if the roles were reversed and THEIR child got hit they'd be suing the car owner who blocked the sidewalk..

  • I use whipping cream for my alfredo all the time it never curdles.

  • I bought the whipping cream and probably could have used it in the recipe with no problem, but I was trying to be true to the recipe since it was the first time I was making it. I made my own heavy cream by melting butter and cooling it, then poring it into 2/3 cup of whole milk. Thank you for the info. The percentage of fat in each one is what Google said.. 30% vs. 36%.

Stolen Package

I had a package that was delivered to my house stolen. I just wanted to alert my neighbors and friends to be aware. This happened on west 55th Street near Melvina. I am making a Police Report.

    Happens all the time, everywhere. Now, when I expect a UPS or FedEx package, I go to their web page and say I will pick it up in person. I usually do Bedford Park, but you can have it sent to a local pickup place.

    Ms. Ensch is asking for $516.80:
    My students need a sensory center inside the classroom. They can go to this center when they become over/under stimulated and need a sensory release!

Parking Business Vehicles on Residential street

Isn't there an ordinence against parking business vehicles on a residential street? I have a neighbor that parks two large pickups with attachments on our zoned street that inconvenience the other neighbors. These trucks easily take up 5 overnight parking spots. Anybody?
