commented on Westlake Cycletrack NIMBYs: Save Our Endangered Parking Spots!
I can have empathy and understanding for the bikers, but can the bikers have it for me/us?
I qualify as one of your NIMBYs, I guess. I am a self employed psychotherapist who has been on Westlake since 2003 and recently renewed my lease up to 2016.
When my therapy clients can't park, they stop coming. I ain't rich. I am still paying off my student loan, and supporting my wife and kid. If they kill half the parking it will seriously mess with the living of a whole bunch of shrinks, massage therapists, acupuncturists and naturopaths on Westlake. It ain't a bunch of rich boat owners and Amazon employees, so have a fucking heart.
