Nature abhors a [parking] vacuum

A new parking sign appeared in the City Hall lot... the spot previously taken by the
Mayor's Chief of Staff.

City employees must jockey for parking spots in the lot behind City Hall. (In all my years, I seldom parked in the same space two days in a row.)

Some, however, get designated spots (the mayor and department heads).

I was a little surprised this morning to  receive the image above from an unknown reader.

It is a photo of a new sign in the City Hall lot, evidently for the Director of Communications -- though it is the only sign in the lot that says "NO PARKING" and then the job title. Is it supposed to mark the spot FOR the Director, or to warn the Director of Communications NOT to park there?

At any rate, the sign went up Wednesday or Thursday of last week, in the spot which had been regularly occupied by Mayor Mapp's former chief of staff John Stewart.

Nature, as they say, abhors a vacuum.
