Al Fresco Larchmont: Parking Hazard

Along with a shortage of parking, another unintended consequence of “Al Fresco Larchmont,” the designation of outdoor dining areas in the street marked off by concrete barricades, are the car dents and scrapes we are hearing about. Be careful out there!

Barriers don’t belong in roadways???? We ought to rethink the entitlement of the automobile. Perhaps Larchmont should just close off Larchmont Ave or Chatsworth like Rye has done on the retail section of Purchase St. Hundreds (perhaps thousands) of European small towns have had delightful walking streets in their cores for decades.

Lordie, I’d hardly blame the barriers. Also, I’ve found there’s more parking than ever…and also love the sidewalk cafe vibe…hope it stays long after Covid is gone (positive thinking on this one).

I think it is a great idea, and it gives our restaurants a chance to survive for at least a few more months. I have not had a problem with parking, even at peak times, but I am willing to park in a parking lot and walk a block or two if I cannot find a spot on the block I am aiming for.

May I suggest a refresher on proper driving practices?

Just need to look and drive slowly. I love Larchmont al fresco

??? So if a person had been standing there it would have been the person’s fault? The cement barricade didn’t move….

I knew it was going to happen. It isn’t only a parking hazard, it’s a driving hazard. Huge chunks of concrete do not belong in the roadway, and blocking sidewalks to pedestrians is also a hazard. Did anyone bother to consider the disabled and how they may not be able to get around these impediments or be unable to park near where they need to go??.
