So on Sunday when we needed to move from our spot in the financial district, we didn’t get very far. We drove to Battery Park city to look for a parking spot only to stall in the middle of the road and Godzilla refused to move. We had to call roadside assistance, which happened to be the same guy who came last time we were stuck in the financial district, he remembered us too. When charging the battery, he noticed and Ed too, that the battery was not charging, it should be, but it wasn’t so he suggested we drive straight to the mechanic shop he worked for and gave us a business card with the address, we did not want to have to call them again for a jump, we could park and sleep right next to the mechanic and wait until morning to have them look at it, so that is exactly what we ended up doing. In the morning Ed looked at the connections to make sure something didn’t come loose which was causing it not to charge, but no such luck, in the end Godzilla needed a new alternator so we were just in the right place and we waited for the part to come in and for them to install it and by the late afternoon it was done and cars double parked all around us waiting their turn to be worked on we needed to get out of the spot and drive on so off to prospect park we went to occupy and hopefully Godzilla will give us a rest now
