The Burg's famous purple truck in the parking lot on Bedford Avenue between N. 11 and N. 12 street is gone. The truck, and its occupants, who spent a year living in the parking lot for $200 a month, took off last week after getting the truck back in driving condition. When last heard from on Saturday, Purple 53 was in Richmond, having left New York City on Friday after spending a few days being brought back up to driving condition. Also, tolls in Jersey apparently put a dent in the budget. The truck is headed south. Georgia is mentioned, as is Louisiana. Another piece of Williamsburg affordable housing gone.
