No parking

I have often heard the statement that there’s not enough parking in downtown Cortland. Is that really true? I think not.

From a CityLab article:

“When we say we can’t find anywhere to park, what we usually mean is we can’t find a free or insanely cheap parking spot within spitting distance of our destination. As a nation of parkers we’re all home run hitters who’ve forgotten what it’s like to knock a single—or, as a closer metaphor, to draw a walk. The result is a misperception that parking is scarce despite, the great deal of lots, street spaces, or garages that might exist a block or two away.”
