Multiple cases of illegal limo parking in North Slope during MVA event

Location: 
5th Ave between St. Mark's and Flatbush; Dean and Bergn between 5th and Flatbush
When: 
August 25, 2013 - 8:45pm
311: 
multiple, see below

Within a short walk of my home I found and reported to 311 approximately 16 illegally parked limousines, during a period of about 20 minutes.

I did encounter some officers on patrol and asked them to deal with the cars within sight at the time, and they responded positively, though I did not wait to witness the result. They seemed to appreciate my pointing out the offending vehicles and interrupted their walk to (I presume) take action.The one TEA I observed was admiring a limo parked at a hydrant and sounded incoherent when I asked him to enforce the law. I do not know if this was a language or personality problem.

The 311 reports include two that I did not note:
1-1-884355761
1-1-884355821
1-1-884355861
1-1-884364301
1-1-884355961
1-1-884326441
1-1-884364551
1-1-884372341
1-1-884364771
1-1-884361171
1-1-884372391
1-1-884364881

I also gently asked two limos at two different times to remove themselves from the hydrant in front of my house where they were idling. They complied, politely.

Note that driver of the Maybach limo T638 875C parked at Woodland (76 6th Ave) was aggressively derisive of anyone who came near him, threatening and shouting obscenities, essentially saying "Don't xx touch my car!" , a mildly amusing demand seeing as I was on the sidewalk, walking away from him (rapidly). He did not want to hear anything about the No Parking sign there, nor the hydrant. I do believe he had the capacity and willingness for minor violence, but in fact nothing transpired of that sort.

I did not patrol beyond my immediate area but I think this number of limos counts as an invasion.
