I am moving to an apt., The landlord told me they were going to do this. How will this impact me and am I going to smell car fumes from my front window?
I assume only the municipality can make a handicapped spot on a public street.

Dear College Point Homeowner:
NYC does not provide any designate disability permit parking places on City streets.
Instead, NYC allows persons with the NYC [not NYS permit/tag] placard to park on City streets even in contravention of some signs [but not all signs] but that is a place on a street where anyone may either legally park or park in accordance with the posted signs. You will not see any of those blue-lined designated with the universal disability symbol anywhere on an NYC street [although every other location in NY State allows disability parking.
