Park and gripe 

dreamstime_s_33639163-_1_.jpg

The City of Durham is considering charging drivers to park during business hours on Ninth Street, where you can now stash your car for three hours for free. Longtime merchants on the block, including The Regulator Bookshop, are concerned that this will deter people from shopping in the district, which is undergoing massive changes with the addition of a Harris Teeter store and other retail outlets that limit access to their own parking lots.

The lack of parking—perceived or real—is a common complaint in many Triangle cities, where we've been spoiled by the comparatively cheap and abundant spaces. (Kvetchers, have you parked in New York or Boston lately?)

Here is a comparison of parking in several area cities and towns.
