OMG – The Power of The New York Times – Shoup Stirs up the Blogosphere

The New York Times is, I guess, read by everyone who counts. A columnist wrote on Sunday about Shoup and the “High Cost of Free Parking” – a five year old tome that has been going around the parking a planning world for half a decade but has now found its way into the main stream media.

Here are just a representative few of the blogs and other comments on parking. Seems like after reading the Times, everyone is an expert.

It’s actually worth your while to read through some of them. If you know anything about Shoup, you know that some are simply making up their theories out of whole cloth, other are forming their comments based on their political views, liberal or conservative.

Have fun, Shoupista’s

    All the best,
