You know you live in Brooklyn when...you see adds for Sukkah Depot and you don't bat an eye. Or you see a scene like the below and know exactly what's going on. Maybe you crack a smile, but you got to get to work and maybe you've forgotten it by lunch.
|Pedi-Sukkahs on Eastern Parkway|
All community members of the 71 Precinct please take moment and check your yards, windows, and roofs and remove any possible objects that may become air born with high winds.
Please check all Succah's to assure they are firmly assembled and free from any objects that may become air born with high winds. Please use extreme caution inside these structures during sever wind conditions.
The bicycle succah/sukkahs are actually part of a long tradition of Mobile Sukkot Shacks. As in...
As far back as Roman times, the ancient sages of Israel taught that it was permissible to build a sukkah on a boat, chariot or even on the back of a camel. They also established that a sukkah must be at least 10 handbreadths tall. Yet it is hard to imagine that anyone foresaw the same laws being applied alongside those of aerodynamics to design a sukkah on wheels.
Hey man. The laws the law.
