A new find today!
A fire hydrant in the middle of a driveway! There has to be a story behind this and I'm sorry I don't know what it is. This was an odd street in another way too. It was a dead end street (not odd) with a LOT of No Unauthorized Parking signs (odd). The street appears to be a public street...well there are no Private Road signs although the houses are all similar enough to figure it was built by a single developer. Do the residents on this street pay for the privilege of stopping non residents from parking here? There are a number of apartment buildings on nearby streets, have drivers visiting or living in these buildings overflowed into this street in the past? Here's a few pictures I took feeling slightly furtive and wondering if I could be asked to leave at any moment.
I like the 10 miles per hour sign. I wish we had more streets with posted low speeds.
These residents are really serious about the parking. Signs were everywhere. "No Parking Fire Lane" was even stenciled on the road itself. Did I miss a parking war?

I am an enthusiastic pedestrian, urban planner, and project manager currently living in New Rochelle, New York. I am grateful to be living in a walkable city with affordable easily accessible public transport (both trains and buses). My appreciation became even greater after spending three years back in New Zealand where it was much harder to fit daily walking into my life in what is considered one of the great natural, green environments in the world.
