Athletes in Brooklyn

The NY Times has an article about the Brooklyn Nets and how most of them are living in Brooklyn, not Manhattan.

“It’s different,” said Luis Scola, a forward from Argentina whose family has a three-bedroom rental in Carroll Gardens. “You walk places. We’re riding our bikes a lot. It’s a place with real personality.”

Scola has also discovered some hard truths about life in Brooklyn — including its byzantine parking rules. Scola has one spot in the garage at his building. The problem is that he brought two cars. He figured he would stash his second vehicle, a minivan, on the street somewhere. How difficult could parking be?

Two cars? What was he thinking?

Less than a week after arriving, Scola found himself camped out behind the wheel of his minivan as he waited for a space to open. He waited some more. And then he made a decision.

“I’m selling it,” he said.
