    Where the parking is located is more important than the sheer number of spaces. 6000 spaces in the Seaport don’t do any good if there’s no reason to go there, and they don’t do any good for people who work in or have medical appointments in the Longwood Medical Area. They certainly don’t do any good for the Boston neighborhoods that saw nearly half the spots on the street covered with huge mounds of snow for two months. Parking needs to be distributed judiciously where it is needed. In Roslindale, where I live, new apartment construction needs some dedicated parking. If even only half the inhabitants of a new development have cars, there is literally no on-street parking to accommodate them.
