Phoenix's Sprawl: Ample Parking In The Desert
City planners have given in...The resulting sprawl [in Phoenix, AZ] is so expansive that it literally prevents travel on foot. Vast eight-lane roads stream past strip mall after strip mall, each shopping center flanked by stadium parking...Parking lots are so abundant they are often completely empty...Public transportation is barely a possibility. Subway? Not in my lifetime. Bus? Yes, but it hasn't kept up with the sprawl...Someone once wrote that if it weren't for cars and air conditioning, Phoenix would be hardly more than a hay camp. Instead, it's now the sixth most populous city in the country..."
