The Slow Evolution From Surface Parking to Garages
Gray writes, "...garages are worth thinking about. Maybe more than any other kind of building, they show the city that we're becoming: a city that's growing up in a different way than the old-style cities of Europe and the East Coast. Instead of starting out with a tight-packed core and then sprawling, we started out sprawling, and are now developing tight-packed cores.
We're squeezing more people into less space - and at least for now, garages allow us to do that without giving up our cars."
