Update, 4:31 p.m. — Score one for the little guy! After complaining to the Voice about the NYPD's sometimes illegal and otherwise dubious parking practices on his Eighth Avenue block, Andy Hort around 1 p.m. today received a visit from a detective and two lieutenants from the Midtown South Precinct. According to Hort, the officers said they were aware of, and shared, his concerns. There had indeed been a great deal of unauthorized parking on the block, they admitted.

They also assured him that they'd be cracking down, and within an hour, Hort says, dozens of cars on the block had been plastered with a stern warning from the precinct. Hort was pleased with the quick reaction. "They said all the right things," Hort tells the Voice. "They said it was wrong...and if they follow through, I'm satisfied."
