Eyes on the Street: MTA Trailer Planted on Broadway Sidewalk

For months, graffiti-laden MTA Capital Construction trailers have been parked curbside on Broadway north of Isham Street, in Inwood, presumably due to ongoing work on the A line. Yesterday we snapped this shot of one trailer's new position, on the sidewalk alongside Isham Park.

Not to jump to conclusions, but given the lust for parking in Upper Manhattan, we wouldn't be surprised if Capital Construction had received complaints about its trailers taking up precious on-street spots. Though we can think of no other reasonable explanation as to why the trailers would now be junking up a busy neighborhood sidewalk, we have a call in to the MTA press office just in case. (The "emergency" number on the trailer itself yielded no answer or voice mail box.)

More photos after the jump.
