Boston and the “last garage”


Boston and the “last garage”

Boston is not going to attempt to renew the lease on the last "cheap" garage in the city. Its "cheap" because the city doesn’t charge market rates to park in the garage ($16 vs $32 a day). Of course there is much discussion as to the decision and its effects on Beantown.

The fact is that it will have no affect on the city. People will still come downtown to work, as long as there is a reason for them to come. Those who can afford it will pay the $32, and those that can’t will ride public transportation.

Yes, I agree with the city fathers that say that building a high rise in place of the garage which will house 1,000 people is a much better deal. Live in the city, pay your taxes, walk to the places you wish to visit.

That’s what a metropolitan area is all about.
