A phenomenon not found everywhere but mostly found in major cities, like New York City. This involves parking your car next to a car already parallel parked on the side of the street. Normally one does not do this for a long period of time, and leaves someone in the car if possible. Obviously this should (and usually is) only be done on wide streets. I'm pretty sure its legal in NYC.
