I think you gotta chill with the kale shaming

well, okay ... as long as nobody gets avocado on my toast!

Speaking of that.. Cafe Con Amor seems like the only place in town that can do avocado toast correctly.. with correctly poached eggs 95% of the time (sometimes they don't survive delivery.. but it's close enough!)

How is the DOT enforcing Zipcar only parking at the designated areas? Is it solely by ticketing non-Zipcars? I recently saw a regular car parked in one of the designated spaces, so when the Zipcar arrived, the driver parked the car near the space, but blocking the crosswalk. It remained like that throughout the day.

My "proof" is anecdotal and only for the mornings. I walk that street every morning at various hours between 7am and 10am and very few stores are open. The reality is that street is made up primarily of bars and restaurants, none of which are open in the morning. Yes, a few shops are open...like coffee places.

At night, it's a different story and I'm sure businesses are feeling it.

It does seem that all of this could have been solved with better enforcement of double and triple parking. Rather than have no cars just make sure the cars that are there are obeying the law. But I think businesses don't care about that as well because every double parker is a customer.

This is the same issue on 74th St. It's a terribly congested street. But there's zero enforcement.

I am convinced that very few businesses were impacted in the morning. I walk on that strip every single morning and there so few businesses even open that there's no way they could be losing business.

I can see businesses having an issue with the evenings and the harsh reality is that these businesses don't care if we live amid congestion, pollution and aggressive drivers.

I'd like to see your proof that businesses were not impacted. and as far as aggressive drivers? if we could get rid of them by eliminating parking or stopping, we should eliminate it 24-7 on every street in the city.

It's really a shame because at least in the morning this initiative really helped ease congestion on Roosevelt. There were no bottlenecks and the lack of cars parking allowed the sanitation dept to clean the streets.
