The lack of parking spaces in the wildly popular West 7th corridor, which has led to widespread towing of cars and lots of pissed off people, might be a thing of the past.
Beginning Thursday, Oct. 5, visitors to the many restaurants, bars, and retail outlets in the development will be allowed to park at nearby Farrington Field for $10. The parking lot will be open from 10pm to 3am, allowing people to park their cars in a secure place and walk across West Lancaster Avenue to West 7th.
“It is creating a centralized parking option for everybody,” said James Hoffman, owner of Varsity Tavern. “You don’t have to worry about getting towed or validated.”
