#596, Public Parking

Something that struck me about Chicago is the huge number of really big parking garages. Since nobody lives downtown, everyone has to put their cars somewhere.

Under 20 minutes costs $6. 21-40 minutes jumps to $16. An hour is $20, and an hour and twenty minutes costs $25. More than 81 minutes will cost $32, with an extra $2 if it goes longer than twelve hours.

Seems a little expensive to me.

Granted, Chicago is a bit farther up the population scale compared to my own dusty little city, but those fees are outrageous.
$2-3 an hour suddenly seems like a bargain, although we often use a garage that is technically closed (no staff collecting money) on weekends so the parking is free.

WV = hummo

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
