    Brooklyn Granny Gets Car Crushed, Bemoans Lost Parking Spot

    That darned storm. It took away her parking space. That, in so many words was the 'what, me, worry?' reaction of Marjorie Smith, an 89-year old Park Slope resident who was more bummed to lose a spot that woulda been good 'til Tuesday.

    If a giant pear tree hadn't crushed the Nissan Altima.

    "It's unusual to get a space in front of your house," said Smith, a grandmother who retired after decades as a secretary and an assitant to a realtor. "It's unusual to get a space period over here."

    But the octogenarian admits the storm which sliced through Brooklyn on Thursday was one-of-a-kind. Take it from her. She's lived in this neighborhood since the '40's.

    "Never had anything like this," she said. "We've had storms, but nothing like this."
