I grew up in Danvers but never really learned my way around Boston. I knew the basic T stops. But my niece, who goes on long jaunts with my brother, is already comfortable parallel parking on Newbury Street (for ice cream). I was impressed! I never really learned to parallel park. It's on the New York driver's test, but not the Massachusetts one. We just had to do a three-point turn.

We didn't have to parallel park on our drivers test either (in KS). They taught us how in drivers ed, but I couldn't really do it until I had to when I lived in Monterey. Lots of street parking there, and I got pretty good at it. Now it's harder because I drive a bigger car!

Haha! Yes...I'm always impressed when people can do it
