UPDATED Transpo Halloween Costume Pics: The Human Muni-Meter, Roundabout
Monday, October 31, 2011 - 01:58 PM
The muni-meters are getting a little more attention recently as the city did away with the old fashioned single space parking meters in Manhattan last month with plans to replace all the coin operated single-spaces meters in the city by the end of 2012. The new editions meters are solar powered, hence the slanted hat Black wears. He fashioned the faux solar panel out of wood and fabric.
Like the real muni-meters made by Parkeon, Black's costume accepts credit cards--what exactly his costume does with them then, we don't know.
