Two weeks ago Streetsblog reported on the glut of public parking garages being built in Hell's Kitchen, which threatens to worsen traffic conditions in one of New York's most congested neighborhoods. The City Planning Commission could have set a precedent last Friday by denying a developer's request to build a 400-car public garage as part of a mixed-use project at 310-328 West 38th Street. Only 232 parking spaces would have been allowed without the special permit.
Instead, the commission approved the request.
Nice. I guess all that hoopla about congestion pricing was just a scam to raise money but not to reduce traffic. Crooks always reveal themselves.
