This NYC fire hydrant costs ticketed drivers $33,000 per year

According to the NY Post, a fire hydrant on the Lower East Side generates the most revenue for New York City out of the 110,000 hydrants citywide.  The hydrant, opposite 152 Forsyth St, brings in over $33,000 per year. 
 
Local residents claim the reason for all the tickets is because the area in front of the hydrant looks like a legal parking spot.  White lines, which look very similar to the boxes denoting legal parking spots, are painted on the road as well as a sidewalk extension that looks just like a bike lane.
 
The DOT says it will review the street markings.
