14 Oct 2007 World’s Worst Neighbor
Parents in Brooklyn were threatened with a $300 fine by New York City because their six-year-old daughter drew a chalk flower on the family’ front stoop.
It seems a contender for the title of “world’s worst neighbor” called the city on the family, claiming the flower — soon washed away by rain — qualified as “graffiti.”
The good news is that city officials, after learning the full details, sided with the family. No fine will be imposed.
