Photo: Diane Edwardson, September 3, 2011. Saturday morning saw a ridiculous number of cars parked on the Red Car Property's "Lot C." (Click on photo to enlarge.)
Most of the cars in these first two photos seem to belong to people who live on Riverside Drive and India St. (This is in addition to the usual cars parked further north on "Lot C." The construction of a house on India St. at the Red Car Property accounts for some of these cars, not all.

Perhaps people are parking here because Google Maps has the Red Car Property marked as "Silver Lake Court." It is not Silver Lake Court. It's private property that we've all been trespassing on for 56 years. However, driving and parking on the property creates a much bigger nuisance as well as particulate air pollution, than hikers, joggers, bicyclists and dog walkers.
I haven't seen this many cars parked on the Red Car Property since the early 1990s.
