Meet Your New Bedford Ave. Parking Lot: You Need One, Right?

Bedford Parking Lot

So, the longstanding mystery of that big empty lot between N. 11th and N. 12th Streets on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg has been solved. It will soon be a big parking lot. Alternately, the site has said to be too toxic for a development, as it was the location of a chemical or paint plant back in the day, or much less dramatically, if just as potentially toxic, the subject of a dispute in the Hasidic community that dates to when the property was worth a heck of a lot less than it is today. Regardless, in the short term, it will be the spot for $7 a day parking. It should be an interesting test of where the Williamsburg market is in terms of paid parking.
