A Snarky Parking Post

In order to increase the standard of living and help all New Yorkers, the NYC Economic Development Corporation has determined that parking lots are more important than the historic buildings at Duffield Street. Since I was down on Duffield today, I thought I would look to see if there are any sites that may be even more suitable to build parking. What a surprise! There already are parking facilities nearby! Maybe, just maybe, instead of destroying an important cultural resource like the Abolitionist homes on Duffield, the EDC might consider these other properties to provide facilities for automobile users.

So, fine Sirs and Madams of the EDC, even though you have the powerful tool of eminent domain at your disposal, maybe these existing parking facilities can be upgraded to provide greater ease to car drivers. This would provide the economic growth without the mess of having to kick people out of their existing homes and businesses.
