Boston Parking

The Boston Courant had an interesting story today in reference to residential parking. It stated: It is a simple math problem 23,251 cars with parking stickers do not divide neatly, or at all, into 5,000 or so parking spaces the city says are in the Back Bay, South End, Beacon Hill and Fenway.

It goes on to say: In the Back Bay, data from the city's Transportation Dept shows 6,253 cars fending for only 1,457 slots.

Beacon Hill has 3,557 cars for only 980 parking spaces.

The Fenway has 3,911 stickers and 1,175 parking spaces...
