621 East Pleasant Street, Amherst aka Babe Town
So after seven consecutive $100/day fines the owner of the van parked on the lawn at Babe Town, a venue for underground music concerts, showed great initiative and backed it up the ten feet required to come into compliance with Amherst zoning bylaw.
Moved 7 car parking problem to Sherman Lane Saturday morning (neighbor submitted photo)
I also could not help but notice the new addition on the overgrown front lawn: a pup tent, that went up when a 4' by 8' plywood illegal sign came down. Maybe the bear gets to sleep there at night. And no, neither the bear or pup tent or combination therein are illegal. But you gotta wonder what 's next, Christmas lights?
Shy college aged youth presumably resident of 621 E. Pleasant aka BabeTown
At one point I stopped and looked directly at him saying, "Can I help you?" But he just kept snap, snap, snapping away. So I open my car door, as he snaps more pictures of my car and license plate, grab my iPhone and he then bounds back to his car leaving the parking lot like a bank robber fleeing the scene of a crime.
Well, I had to run out to North Amherst anyway, in my roles as a Town Meeting member and reporter, so as I drove by 621 East Pleasant Street, aka "Babe Town..."
I could not help but notice from the very public street that East Pleasant Street is, the very same college aged youth sitting on the front porch of his Daddy's mansion.
