This edition of Photos of the Week might scare you.
You just never know what, or who, is lurking down in your parking garage.
Or maybe it’s just where I live…
Talk about “best intentions”…
In my building on George Street, there was a problem with visitors finding their way into residents’ parking, so the property manager decided we needed to paint “RESIDENT PARKING” above the second garage door.
The problem is – somebody dead a really crappy job!
The paint dripped down, and it looks creepy! Like the residents are going to be murdered or something:
Doesn’t that resemble the classic “bloody font” like this:
Maybe the garage in my building is just a scary place!
I mean, check out the sign below.
I know it’s intended to be helpful, but what the hell are they insinuating with “Check your back seat”?
I am NOT a qualified home inspector.
However, I don’t think it takes an expert to determine that this is NOT to code.
But a downspout strapped to a tree? Hmm….
Is there a condominium lawyer among us, today?
Can anybody tell me whether or not it’s legal to store a car and four motorcycles in a parking space?
Every condominium has a slightly different “Declaration,” and each comes with various rules and regulations. Some condominiums specify that only ONE vehicle is permitted in each parking spot.
But here we see the exception to the rule…
I’ll let Jay-Z describe the terrace at this condo in the Thompson Residences…
“We be.. big pimpin, spendin cheese
We be.. big pimpin, on B.L.A.D.’s
We be.. big pimpin down in P.A.T.
It’s just that Jigga Man, Pimp C, and B-U-N B “
Do you ever get tired of my photos of lockboxes?
See that lockbox in the top right corner with the red arrow? That’s my lockbox for my listing at 363 Sorauren Avenue – the Robert Watson Lofts.
There are twenty-eight other lockboxes here.
Do you know how many other properties are for sale?
Real estate agents LOVE leaving lockboxes all over the city, and yet, you’d be surprised how often I hear somebody in my office say, “Does anybody have a lockbox I can borrow for a couple of weeks?”
Last but not least, and perhaps off topic, but can anybody tell me why some snotty restaurants are allowed exclusive use of city streets for valet parking?
See below – I don’t understand.
Here’s Coppi Ristorante up at Yonge & St. Germain, and whereas every other storefront has paid street parking in front, Coppi has about thirty feet of space for their valets to accept keys and cars.
Why does the City of Toronto allow this?
How much do these restaurants pay the city?
