Parking Tickets in NYC
When I was in Manhattan a month helping my boyfriend move I parked on the street in front of his building, was fine for the whole week up until the day before I left when I got a ticket for being too close to the fire hydrant (and come to find out from my boyfriend the fire hydrant has been removed, so it wasn't even a functioning fire hydrant!).
I tried to appeal it, saying that because I am an out-of-state resident I shouldn't have to pay this fine because I'm not familiar with New York parking laws other than ones that were posted on the street. The decision came in the mail today with the general bureaucrat bullshit response and says that I still have to pay. I feel like I've heard of exemptions before for out-of-state drivers, is there anything I can do at this point? I especially think I shouldn't have to pay when it wasn't even a functioning fire hydrant. Or am I screwed if I have no evidence to offer? What evidence can I even offer?

I'm not going to Rupologize!
