This half-dirt, single-block street is a remnant of an old colonial-era road. According to this mini-memoir about Old Kingsbridge Road, the parking spots here were once a prized commodity because there was no alternate-side parking. (It didn't occur to me to look for parking signs while I was out there, but I'm guessing this is now a private street with restricted parking.)
Ack. The bane of alternate-side parking.
I’m in agreement with the author on the first link that this place should be preserved, and some signage installed.
So many fascinating things we learn traveling when along with you, Matt. :-D
Sweet memoir, too.
got to remember this place. Nice loophole..
