There’s No Parking In Brooklyn – A Visual Study

I’m fascinated by the diverse array of “No Parking” signs that sprout behind Brooklyn curb cuts. They’re little slices of folk art hidden in plain sight.

Despite the universal need for “NO PARKING” signage, there’s little consensus on their appearance. I see old-school Brooklyn, hipster Bushwick and graffiti kids in every driveway.

Signs can be threatening or matter of fact; professional or comically childish. A ubiquitous, yet hardly uniform feature of the urban landscape.

You can find the complete collection of 2013 Brooklyn No Parking photos over on my Tumblr.
