Last week, the City Planning Commission approved the New Domino in a unanimous vote. One of the only changes the commission demanded from the project’s developers was to eliminate one parking lot, reducing the number of parking spaces from 1,694 to 1,428. The 266-space reduction was not based on studies or research. It came straight from a request by Borough President Marty Markowitz.
Any reduction in parking is a benefit to the community, but clearly there is room for more to be cut.
