Alternate side of the street parking regulations went back into effect in Joy Buzzer's Brooklyn neighborhood today, three months after the regs were suspended to facilitate the posting of new signs throughout the nabe. The event has been reported endlessly, including a lengthy piece in today's NYT. The great fear here was that outlanders would park their cars more or less permanently on our streets, while we locals would wander the streets in our cars like so many exhaust-spewing Flying Dutchmen -- crusing Dutchman, actually -- searching endlessly and fruitlessly for parking spots. The situation never got that bad, but we area residents are certainly glad to see the end of what we are sure were hundreds, possibly thousands, of vehicular squatters from Bensonhurst, Dyker Heights and Nebraska. Happy motoring and good riddance.
