To the Editor:
In your article you mention: “After all, if people can’t find a place to sit down, they will park as close as possible to the business. This compounds the problem.”
The same happens in Berlin, on a larger scale. No benches, no outside sitting, and one of the large outside shopping streets (Friedrichstrasse) is losing customers, business. Nearly half of the shops are empty.
The people in a community do matter – not cars.
