Katie Harvey and Anthony Eskinazi
…hold the key to your parking frustrations
IF PARKING in London on a Saturday night is driving you crazy, then help could be at hand at the click of a mouse.
North London graduates Katie Harvey and Anthony Eskinazi have developed a website, parkatmyhouse.com, which is intended to let homeowners with empty driveways and businesses with unused car-parking spaces make money by renting out their spaces to drivers needing somewhere to park.
Jews and parking? Sounds a viable combination. Ms Harvey, 23, tells People: “Whether you are a football fan wanting a space near the Arsenal Emirates stadium, or a shul-goer attending a function somewhere, we have the space.”
Recently re-launched, the site has 1,400 registered uses and 500 available spaces across the UK, including ones in Desborough, Kirkcaldy and Teddington. Homeowners can apparently earn up to £5,500 a year by renting out their driveway.
“Although many synagogues offer on-site parking,” she says, “it can become costly, with residentpermit-holder and pay-and-display services in operation seven days a week. We wanted to solve these problems.”
