Old bus stops serve new purpose

(08/02/10) PARKCHESTER - Drivers in Parkchester have converted an old Bx14 bus stop into a parking space.

Since certain buses are no longer in service, residents say their stops serve as perfectly legal parking spaces. The move has brought sighs of relief in a neighborhood plagued by parking problems.

Some residents say a few spots here or there will not do much. However, local business owners recognize that any increase in parking could mean an increase in revenue.
