How many things can you do with a parking space (other than park in it)? Well, according to Transportation Alternatives, quite a few. To prove the point, a group of adults and children took up residence in two parking spaces at 7th Avenue and 1st Street in Park Slope. The amusing results are chronicled in a QuickTime video and also related by blogger Naparstek, from whom the photo above also comes. These "parking spot squats" are scheduled from time to time, so if you are moved to hang in a parking space in a lawn chair with your iced chai soy latte while courting parking rage, we are confident there will be more opportunities to squat.
