Re: “"Liberal" Doesn't Always Mean Liberal

Well, gee:
"Understanding the impact that NIMBYs have on the city will also give you insight as to why downtown Berkeley, Telegraph Avenue, and other shopping districts are pocked with empty storefronts and vacant lots. There simply aren't enough people living here to make more stores, restaurants, and bars financially viable."

Let me see.
The closed storefronts are there because there isn't enough housing to support them.
Does that take into account the many empty apartments in the new construction?
And, how does that explain that these places once contained businesses, for years, supported by the local population?
Maybe those empty storefronts have to do with the economy and not any need for further speculative development.
