Having lived in NYC for 30+ yrs on the other hand... it seems like anyone with a badge can write you up for anything. Meter maids will leave no/invalid plate tickets, expired registration, etc... on your window every day.
Just get one of the many tow hook brackets that are available and run the standard plate.
Definitely... I don't think the rest of the US understand how bad it is out here with them meter maids. I may have to stick to the original NY plates with double sided 3M tape Idea. I don't like the off-center look with the tow-hook option. Blahhhhh
