It ain't exactly paradise, but put up a parking lot, anyway

Just what Hartford needs. More parking lots. More pavement. Another grand genuflection to the car culture.

I'm sure Wallace Stevens would be spinning in his grave.

I mean, WTF. In another boneheaded move, the Hartford (insurance company) will tear down a beautiful old, still functioning, office building to create a parking lot.

Can you imagine this lot in Paris, or Vienna or Venice. There'd be plenty of places to park, but not much to visit.

Okay, strong mayor, whatcha gonna do?
