    Re: De Young
    Hollein cited the loss of 25 percent of the parking spots when cycle tracks were laid down on John F. Kennedy Drive in 2012 and a fear of losing out-of-town visitors as reasons to oppose the street closure, as well as concern for people with disabilities and families who may travel by car.

    WTF, what’s the purpose of the underground parking garage? There should be a rule that street parking should be removed when a parking garage is installed. Otherwise you get this utter sheer selfish greed.

    “There should be a rule that street parking should be removed when a parking garage is installed.”

    That seems fair. But then some wag will suggest the opposite – that off-street parking should be built whenever on-street parking is removed.

    Be careful what you wish for.

  • How about if a mass transit subway station were accessible in the park that allowed people from all over the city and Bay Area to enjoy the splendor of GGPark without having to deal with driving or parking?

  • GregKamin

    You means like the N streetcar that skirts GGP to the immediate south?

    Or the 5 Fulton bus that skirts the northern boundary of GGP?

    Yes, if only.

    20 years later, and the De Young is back at the same land grab.

  • Wow, a streetcar! How progressive is that. Oooh, and a bus that takes 45 minutes to an hour to downtown. You’re a moron.

  • GregKamin

    You claimed there was no mass transit to GGP.. I proved that to be false. Twice.

    But yeah, you’re right, there’s no high-speed rail or airport.
