agree that the simplicity of parking once one decides to go there was a hidden appeal.

many people who don't know river market are intimidated until they try it.

now, the parking will be a negative. it's less the money than the complication.

Were you a drug baby? There's more apartments, stores, and activity in the city market today than in the last 40 years. Yeah, it's dead... not.

So the business owners have to pay but the employees don't? That's not going to work. This city is just running more and more business out of K.C.

As soon as the City smells a successful area, they move quickly to stomp it flat. Businesses can move to NKC just across the river, and do just fine. Parking is free and there are plenty of vacant spaces. Come up North.

I visit City Market/River Market four or five days a week. And I spend money there every time. Pay to park? Forget it. Your crummy town is not a "destination city." A few aspects of it, like City Market, are a convenience, nothing more. Except on weekends, when it's a zoo. You're making it inconvenient seven days a week, and so I'll quit going there.

It's all because of the streetcar people using City Market as their park and ride lot.

Between Winsloes shitty BBQ, the farmers market full of stolen goods from Walmart, Kmart, Burlington and Sears and the parking mess the city market has become sh*thole country.

9:30 - Bullshit. Some of the most interesting small restaurants in the area are in the west and south wings of City Market, and others are scattered throughout the area. Steamboat Arabia is one of the best privately owned museums I have visited and the venerable Planter's Seed is worth a visit any time. New brewpub opening soon on Oak Street. City Diner or Opera House for breakfast or lunch.

You obviously don't go there much, and when you do, you fail to notice a lot.
