The best parking meters in downtown, for my money, are along St. Paul near the Dallas Museum of Art. I’m not going to tell you too much about why, because I already have to get there 10 minutes before they turn on to snag one. But they’re next to this mess, which was sent over by contributor Doyle Rader:
This was taken yesterday afternoon. I can verify that it remained there this morning. Only this time, the construction on the street—which appears to be utility-related, but I’m not exactly sure—swallowed up not only those precious parking meters, but the sidewalk.
