WASHINGTON HEIGHTS, NY – A “No Standing Anytime” sign nailed to a tree outside a Washington Heights NYPD precinct was not put up by the city – and its appearance is causing outrage.

The sign, hammered into the tree in front of the NYPD’s 34th precinct on Broadway, near West 183rd Street, proclaims no parking except for police vehicles and reads that it was ordered by the Department of Transportation.

That city agency confirmed to Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer that it did not issue the sign. It’s unknown who actually did put up the sign.

It is illegal to fasten any poster, sign, advertisement or other printed material on a tree for any reason, according to the Department of Transportation. It carries a fine of up to $200 for the first offense, with a second offense bringing with it a $300 to $550 fine.

The picture of the nailed in “No Standing Anytime” was originally posted by the Twitter account “placard corruption.”
