Yohna Shimmel charges almost $5 apiece for a knish. Their customers can afford to park a block away and walk over there to pick them up. Might work off a couple of those Knish pounds (if you know what I'm sayin') in the process too.

I don't understand shit like this. It's not the suburbs. You can park your car and walk. You're not entitled to a fucking spot right in front of the store.
