The old 1971 Caddy was a local landmark. Residents aren't sure how long it had sat in the same spot, but it dates back to at least 1994. The anonymous owner kept it registered, but never drove it. Even when movie shootings required that all cars be moved, the Cadillac remained in place. MSN Cars reports:
Interestingly, the 1970s sedan had a current New York inspection sticker. After a recent complaint however, the car was ticketed by a street cleaner and, shortly after, towed to the NYPD’s Erie Basin Auto Pound. [...]
However, not everyone was happy when the vehicle was towed by the city. “That car is a staple in this community,” said a neighbor that goes by the name of Jake. “Those who gawk at it and want to get rid of it aren’t real Brooklynites."
