I got into a space that tight once, when I lived in Boston and the only parking we had was on-street. It was around 1:00AM, and it was the only space available nearby. I started into it and realized that it was tighter than I had thought and I probably would have given up, but this guy in a smaller car pulled up and was waiting for me to give it up. Then I was determined. It took me probably 20 or so back and forths, but I got in, and he drove away disappointed.

Back when I lived near NYC, this was a popular solution.

In 25 years of NYC driving- thankfully that only happened to me about 2-3 times. Once on a hill with a manual transmission.................

How did that person ever get a driver's license in the first place? Especially a car that small?

Use Diagonal Parking method when in doubt. Seriously, In the late 1950s and early 1960s, in New York City Isettas were like ants.
