Welcome to Hell's Kitchen Mr. President.

New Yorkers are pretty used to Presidential gridlock, but the Barbizon Electric office on 55th Street experienced it first hand Tuesday.

When President Obama was in town for the day his motorcade route came directly in front of our offices.

"The entire street was barricaded off for the day and two tow trucks were parked on the block. If a car even looked like it was going to stop it was hooked up and sent to the tow lot!" commented Barbizon's fearless leader Jonathan Resnick.

Our (Barbizon's) President (You can also see him on the curb right next to the NYC officer in the pics below) went out to greet Obama hoping he might stop by to discuss lighting techniques, but it seemed the leader of the free world's schedule was pretty packed.
