So, Uh, Take The Bus Or Subway? Also, too, walk or bike.

Yes, yes, I know some people are going to want to drive, and businesses might legitimately worry about those (potential) customers, but the only way to have a thriving corridor in that spot or anywhere similar is if significant numbers of people don't drive. The cars take up too much space. There isn't room. The subway stop is about a block and a half away and there's a frequent bus line right there.

Businesses in places like that really need to stop worrying about the people who bitch about parking and worry about how to increase foot traffic.
