Parking was a huge pain for one disabled Manhattan housing tenant until she turned to NY1 for help. NY1's Susan Jhun filed the following NY1 for You report.

Rosabel Parra, a disabled resident at the Fulton Houses in Chelsea, is finally getting the parking spot she has been praying for.

"It's undescribable," Parra said. "I don't have to look for parking. We have our own spot. It's amazing."

Last week, NY1 reported how Parra had been waiting more than a year for a parking spot until she was finally assigned one in June.

Parra paid $650 for the spot and submitted a final application, but then found that the spot was already taken.

The housing tenant said she went back and forth with management, which told her she could and then could not have the space.

"It's been horrible, horrible, and the fact that I did my part and did it in a timely fashion, but now I'm getting the run around of 'Yes, no, yes, no' to my parking permit, it's very frustrating," Parra said.

NY1 contacted management and the New York City Housing Authority last week, and now, after a year of waiting, Parra finally has her parking spot.

"Thank you guys for your help, because if it wasn't for you guys, this wasn't possible," Parra said.
