Here's a look at the east side of the street... not one car parked. There are at least 24 open parking spots available. Prior to the parking meter deal, there would be at least a dozen cars parked at this time of the morning.
I really don't know what to make of this or if it's hurting the coffee shop and other businesses. Of course, I'm a little annoyed by going to the box, getting the ticket, going back to my car etc... on my regular coffee run. But, I always get a prime spot. This location has always been a little tough due to parking permits on Leland and meters related to the Damen Brown Line stop in the evening hours.
How has parking changed for you in Ravenswood?
