Parking Problems in Park Slope

The city is considering privatizing parking in Park Slope because the situation is so bad (it's as bad in Queens but we don't seem to generate attention here):

NO-PARK SLOPE

Slope's vicious circle

Councilman David Yassky (D-Brooklyn) cautioned that parking in Park Slope will only get worse once the $4 billion Atlantic Yards project - which includes an NBA arena and 16 skyscrapers - is built between 2009 and 2017 in neighboring Prospect Heights.

Really? And here the Crapper thought all those problems had been worked out...

The only problems worked out on these projects is the developer's paperwork.

Schools? Parking? As they say in church, 'the Lord will provide.'

City Services? How about shitty services?

Duh! When you propose overbuilding in an area that's already choked up....saturated to the max.... what you get is more noise, air pollution, crowded schools, lack of adequate health care, traffic congestion.....uh.....it's a long list!

City planning is rubber stamping these kind of projects all over Queens. How come our elected officials (and the press) are silent? Are they on the payroll of these same developers?
