The Classic Pittsburgh Parking Chair

Welcome to Pittsburgh’s Official Parking Chair Museum. We’ve compiled this gallery to celebrate a local phenomenon that has become the universally accepted no parking sign in the Burgh – or should we say “sNOw parking” sign. Thanks to the Blizzard of 2010, the streets of Pittsburgh are starting to look like a cross between Ikea and a flea-market. Help us add some witty captions to the pictures below…

If you’re proud of your parking chair, send a picture to snOMG@boringpittsburgh.com and we’ll feature it here!

    I’m not a Pittsburghian so I don’t know… Is this a snow related phenomenon or is it older than that?

    • Transl8

      Oh nevermind, I got my answer… Thanks Wikipedia!

  • PghFilmer

    OMG OMG OMG I work is just interfering with my stalking, I mean reading. thanks for sharing! Do you think that people save chairs just to put out to hold parking spaces? Hmmm, maybe there is a market for parking space savers, too bad Billy Mayes is dead he could sell them. I keep expecting to see a person and some beer in one.

    These are priceless. My favorites are the tire and the sweeper. However, this is by no means a new Burg practice. Years ago, living in Oakland with Forbes Field nearby, residents would put out street chairs on Pirate game days for blocks and blocks away from the ball park.
