2012-02-04 19:17:52   Be careful going to the First Friday at the Hungerford Gallery . It is a lovely place and great environment but if you park in the wrong area mistakenly you will get towed by a very expensive and shady towing company. The Mojoe pizza place owns an empty building on the lot. You think you are parking in the Hungerford lot but you are not and Mojoes can't wait to pick up the phone and call their buddies at the tow place. In about an hour they managed to tow at least 10 cars. There is a "illegally parked cars will be towed" sign but you think it was put up by the gallery. It was not put up by the gallery. It was put up my Mojos. They could make people less confused if they put up a sign that said "Mojo parking only" but that would stop the gravy train towing scam. And Mojoes has its own parking for their pizza place so it is not even close to this empty building. Hungerford has a small sign warning about the towing but it is only noticeable if you are exiting the building. Patrons entering the building would never see it. They need toput the sign on the entrance doors if they want to encourage people to come back. I never will. Feeling scammed and wondering if the City of Rochester is aware of what is going on in this lot. The tow place did not have a storefront. You have to give your credit card number to some guy in a beat up car who then gives it to someone on a cell phone before you can get your car back. —ShellySmith
