From the Twittersphere: Park-ing

 

Hey, Providence, it’s called a public park, not a public parking lot. @gcpvd, how do you put up with this? http://tweetphoto.com/23351458less than a minute ago via UberTwitter


Don’t feel like clicking the link (or don’t get the whole Twitter thing and have no idea what that is all about), here’s the photo:

How do we put up with this? Sigh. It’s like some kind of Stockholm Syndrome or something. Burnside and Biltmore Parks are among our nicests, is it so bad that their are cars parked there?

SNAP OUT OF IT!

Of course it is. This is ridiculous, and it is equally as ridiculous over at Cathedral Square. I mean, you can see the cars parked in Cathedral Square from space!

So who do these cars belong to? Who said they can park there? And who can put an end to it? Anyone?

Thanks to Sheila, I know how to embed a Tweet
