Re: “How Bay Area Apartment Buildings Waste Money, Space on Car Parking

Gary, I actually agree with you for the most part, except for the fact about 'educating' the residents. People are set in their ways, and don't even realize how much they'd enjoy an urban environment that is more dense, walkable, and transit friendly. It just needs to happen by our elected officials and policy makers. The political will and ferocity is required; not permission from residents.

You said it yourself. People from the United States travel to these incredibly dense, beautiful cities all around Europe and Asia, and they marvel at the quality of life. There is no reason we cannot have that here. People just don't realize it. So if we ever want ANYTHING even closely resembling that, we're never going to get it if we politely ask for residents' permission who don't want the views of their 2nd story dream home wrecked by a 5 story apartment building.

Janette Sadik-Khan was successful in her time as chief planner in NYC for this exact reason. She knew she could get nothing done if she waited for the bureaucracy's approval.

Re: “Top Twelve Dive Bars in the East Bay

It's not listed, but Smitty's on Grand Ave is a pretty solid dive. Can't wait to try Baggy's.
