    Despite $18.15 million poured into 6th Street and its "gourmet ghetto" since 2003, the area has some of the most stringent parking hours in the City — and they stand out even in comparison with other cities too.

    The New York Times reports that with a vacancy rate that's plummeted from 45 percent to 11 percent, and with more restaurants opening up (not to mention newcomer Passion Cafe), the neighborhood's parking rules still aren't changing.

    In fact, they were originally demanded by residents, says the SFMTA, so those residents will have to speak up if they want the rules changed. Besides, we're transit-first.
