Read this one and weep — Its an editorial from the Boston Globe. If you can’t find it, basically it says that garage designers in Boston are evil beasts who simply want to add pain to the lives of the driving public. It lists grievances from poor lighting to tight turning radius , to the fact that you car gets lost and you can’t find it.

In some defense, there probably haven’t been a lot of garages built in Boston since Arch Street went up half a century ago, well I guess there is Post Office Square and Government Center, but even these are well over a decade old.

My guess is that the Globe" wouldn’t be happy with most any garage, except the huge structures designed for Disneyland which expect one visitor per spot per day.

That’s how it is — although I certainly have been in many garages that frankly could have used a few more foot candles and a coat of white paint, or at a minimum a good washing.
