All I can say is thank god the City didn't force them to build a ton
of traffic-inducing parking for the Barclay's Arena.
Area residents who were demanding more parking have no idea what they
would have been in for. A combination of more traffic and an
additional hulking parking structure that would have been an underused
money pit like the deck (dreck?) at Yankee Stadium.
That said, I still think the City needs to implement a residential
parking permit program. But people who demand more parking in
situations like these really need a primer on induced traffic demand.
