I think the Temple Street Garage does not deserve the bad rep. Mayhaps people are scapegoating Temple Street Garage for New Haven’s parking problems. New Haven is an awesome city because of its rich history stretching back hundreds of years. Just as in other historic East Coast cities, like Boston, driving and parking is challenging, with narrow streets (mostly one ways), limited options, and high costs. None of which is the fault of Temple Street Garage. I find the garage to be an architectural gem. Its sweeping concrete curves are a memorable feature in the fabric of New Haven. Furthermore, the Temple Street Garage partners with local venues like Bow Tie Criterion Cinemas and the Union League Cafe to offer validated (reduced price) parking. Ditto for reduced monthly parking rates. This parking garage is convenient to downtown New Haven and the interstate highway, and has memorable architecture. I recommend it!
