Not bad for a part of the city/neighborhood that's often looked down on...

Baker's coming parking squeeze

two lots on Broadway help provide parking needed by evening visitors; but these lots aren't public, they are private lots used by the public without any formal arrangement; after the credit union or Big Lots have closed for the night, one or both of these lots might be nearly full with patrons of the Mayan, Three Kings Tavern or any of several other active nightspots on Broadway

recently two events have threatened this status quo

1st & Broadway vacancy

the question of this property's future is illuminated by a large sign

credit union parking lot policy change

new signs at Security Service Credit Union promise trouble to those who've found the ample parking lot convenient for evening visits to Broadway hotspots
