This past Sunday mayoral hopeful Fernando Ferrer stopped at the Greater Highway Deliverance Temple in East Harlem and proceeded to rip the city’s policy of activating parking meters in busy commercial areas on Sundays, calling the practice “Pay to Pray.” Of course, attacking parking meters is as safe a bet as there is in politics. There are few advocates for more meters and the traffic agents that inevitably come along with them.
Unfortunately, also at the service were reporters, who must have left the former Bronx president wishing he had taken in “The Gates” one last time before they were dismantled.
