Parking vs. Everything Else: An Aerial Map of Downtown Detroit

The above map, produced by Data Driven Detroit, comes to us though the satirical Facebook page Michigan Needs More Parking. It shows downtown Detroit with parking highlighted in orange and red: garages in orange, surface lots in red.

“We must do something about all of these non-parking blocks holding back Detroit,” writes Michigan Needs More Parking.

The city is getting ready to decide whether to allow the demolition of a historic bank to make way for, you guessed it, more downtown parking.
