Parking Triumph / by Charlene Wang

A big component of set decorating buying in NYC is driving a minivan (#minivanlife baby) around New York City’s five boroughs, crazy traffic, anything goes driving norms, and most importantly parking.

When I first started I did not really know how to parallel park. I’m happy to report one of the most concrete skills I’ve acquired in the set decorating career is solid parallel parking skills.

Also, talk to anyone who drives regularly in New York City, and they could take to you ages about their best parking triumphs like a highlight reel of sports teams best plays. A good parking spot can totally make your day!

So it is with great fanfare I present you one of my best parking jobs to date:

near Washington Square Park on one of the quiet nearby streets that always has good parking (I’m not going to tell you where!)
