There was low light as I made my way up Congress Street the other morning. Often I have been asked about how this city has changed since the days I rode my bike up and down the streets. The city has exploded. Changes are everywhere I look. Like everything else in the world big changes often begin without notice. If I had to make list of all the ways this town has been altered, I would probably run out of paper before I stopped writing. Parking, like in any city, has always been a big deal. When I saw my first parking garage going up, I said, "They are going to park cars up in the air?" In this photo today, we see two large ones connected by this skyway. These two provide parking for the Maine Medical Center, further up the hill and to the right off of Bramhall Street. Parking garages eliminate one problem: getting vehicles off the narrow, limited parking streets. Now, if they could only lower the prices. Yes, the city has changed a lot, but other things haven't. I'm still living in a dream world, some days! And I can get blue.
