2010_02_fbparking.jpgYou'll never believe this, but there's a controversy at the Ferry Building. The latest debate has nothing to do with vendors or restaurants directly though: it's about a parking lot, which was proposed for the vacant pavement behind the Ferry Building (when it sits empty, of course). However, pedestrian advocates have successfully lobbied to nix the plan, which would have provided 65 parking spaces. Merchants are none too pleased ("hopping mad," to be precise), claiming their customers need parking to bring home groceries. Discuss. [Curbed]
