    So, the hydrant was already there, he (or some previous owner) went and put in a driveway and now wants the City to pay to move the hydrant? The chutzpah of some people is really something else. If he doesn’t like where the hydrant is, he should pay the cost of moving it.

    The Staten Island example is peculiar though. It’s not in front of a drive way, it is literally just sitting about two feet out into the street. Looking at neighboring streets, it looks like there might have once been a narrow strip of grass along the road that DOT paved over at some point. The whole area has no curbs. Very odd.
