Parking Madness 2015: Can Your Parking Crater Compete?

2:20 PM PST on March 3, 2015

Rochester won last year's Parking Madness bracket with this downtown catastrophe where a real neighborhood once stood.

March is a special month on Streetsblog. It's the time when the nation's worst downtown parking scars face off head-to-head for the shame of winning the "golden crater" -- and the local publicity bonanza that comes with it. For the third year running, we're asking you to help seed the bracket in our Parking Madness tournament by sending in photos of the sorriest wastes of urban space you can find.

What makes for a good entry? We're looking for downtown parking craters -- expanses of urban land where there's no longer space for people, just a sea of car storage -- in North American cities. Craters that have already competed in Parking Madness tournaments are ineligible -- please check the brackets from 2013 and 2014 before submitting.

To enter, send us a photo of the crater and a link to an aerial map (not just the link, please), as well as a description of why your crater deserves to win. You can submit your entry in the comments or email angie [at] streetsblog [dot] org.

Thanks for participating -- looking forward to a new round of spectacular eyesores!

Tulsa, our 2013 winner.
