What the hell are you talking about. People in NYC need parks more than they need cars. In a city where public transit is king, cars shouldn't be a priority. If you are stupid enough to drive in NYC, it's your issue. Take the bus, take the train. No one needs a car, unless you have merchandise to transport.

They are putting measures in place to reduce total traffic going into lower Manhattan.

Yes, the best way to alleviate traffic issues is to encourage more cars to come in.

I think is should remain a park but if you were to change it into something, make it multifamily housing.

Just tear down one of the buildings on each of the east and west side. Build parking garage instead. Imaginary problem solved.

Add 204,000 parking spaces, and remove 843 acres of green space? Who needs oxygen anyway?

I think we should just remove cars from NYC altogether

Should limit NY City streets to public transportation and deliveries only. Just as smart of an idea, better for the environment, and safer for pedestrians.

Definitely an unpopular opinion, but also not an opinion anyone genuinely holds

NYC has a problem with parking. Why not re-dedicate Central Park to parking to help the problem?

by Delmerjakubowsk 1 month ago

Adding parking creates the issue. If people know they won't find parking they're less likely to drive. It's called induced demand. Just like widening roads, all you do is make it more appealing for people to drive more until you're right back where you started but with another lane.

An increasing population without adding parking means what? Adding to the public transit system and possibly without increasing public transportation revenue! How do cover the decrease in revenue?

Why not put parking under Central Park and just use an elevator?
