Trader Joe’s in Brooklyn Loses Some Choice Parking Spots


We already knew it had a run on some cult chocolate chips and that its staff has impeccable grammar, and now here’s another sign that the Cobble Hill Trader Joe’s is at the center of some weird retail universe: DNAinfo reports that epidemic levels of double-parked cars have caused the DOT to take the unusual action of removing three metered parking spaces directly outside the Court Street grocery store in order to reduce congestion. The new “No Standing” regulations are in effect from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, including Sundays. [DNAinfo, Earlier]
