Coming from Chicago, I do know that the public transportation there is years ahead of Jacksonville's.  Thus parking isn't as much of a problem when much of the population doesn't own cars--as compared to so many drivers here.  However, even without added parking here, one has hope that areas in our fair city can be updated and upgraded because we have  so much history and so many willing people here.

I lived in Chicago, in Wicker Park, in the mid to late 90s. What a great city, and wonderful neighborhood. Empty Bottle, Double Door, Lava Lounge, Tumans, and many other places to see music or grab a beer. I saw PJ Harvey, the Roots, Wu Tang Clan, the Executioners, and many amazing turntablists & djs too. Good times.
