Car Parking in Los Angeles magazine
- Wow, that's a great article.
I can certainly see parking fixation in the Twin Cities, and it has the status of a sacred cow. The result, as in L.A., is a fragmented landscape, and inner city "urban redevelopment" projects that look as if they belong in some suburb: tacky big box stores with parking lots that turn into windswept Arctic tundra-like barriers to pedestrians in the winter.
There are some more pedestrian-friendly redevelopments, but only in affluent areas, and one potentially attractive development in one of the inner-ring suburbs has very poor bus service. Go figure.

nice it was to live away from the cars. This revelation
came to me in Hilton Head, SC, a gated-community resort.
Harbour Town was the most expensive real estate on the
island, and it was... carfree.
