Saturday, July 29, 2006, at the Jesup Avenue bridge over the Cross Bronx "Expressway." I called 311 to get the city to tow that abandoned car away, but the operator needed an address or an intersection to locate this vehicle. An address would be a stretch, and the computer didn't accept "Jesup Avenue and the Cross Bronx 'Expressway'" as a known intersection.

There was a faded temporary tag taped to the rear window. Its presence means that the NYPD, rather than Sanitation, is responsible for removing the vehicle.
