From the Daily News:
Civic leaders long have tried to address the scarcity of spaces near the Austin St. retail stretch - centered at 71st-Continental Ave., a block from the subway.
But the "Queens Parking Crunch" series is renewing calls for solutions so locals can awaken from their spot-search nightmare.
In interviews with Queens News, locals suggested everything from angled parking to making Austin St. one way to erecting a municipal lot close by.
But resolving the vehicular vexation first requires an understanding of why finding a spot in Forest Hills has become so difficult.
Customers frequent the Midway Theatre on Queens Blvd., Barnes & Noble and a diverse mix of eateries and clothing stores that line Austin St. from Ascan Ave. to Yellowstone Blvd.
If motorists venture south into Forest Hills Gardens, it compounds their stress because only residents of the private enclave and visitors with passes can park there.
On the other hand, crossing Queens Blvd. leads to stretches of apartment buildings, houses and offices where the demand for parking outweighs the supply.
"It's a major concern in the district - very frustrating riding around the block looking for a spot," said Frank Gulluscio, manager of Community Board 6.
Sounds like you need a bike lane!
