NYC is a very difficult place to find free parking and the signs can be very confusing. Take these for example, after reading them when can you park for free? If you misinterpret them and get towed away it will cost you a kings ransom to get your car back. My solution, take the train or park in a garage.

Exif: F Number: 4.5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 10/12500 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 60.00 mm, Model: NIKON D200

It would be funny if it weren't so true! Nice find...

After wading my way through all the confusing (and ambiguious) online "paperwork" in the unemployment application, I'm convinced that it is all some grand design to make us go mad and do ourselves in! #8008731

Cool title, fantastic clarity, detail,lighting & confusing sign captured here! It is like trying to reach a human when calling a company. Press 1 if you are 75 if you are about to jump through the nearest window.................. #8011059
