With little fanfare, the new Elm Street parking lot is now open.
It’s next to Bedford Square — on the site of the former Villa del Sol restaurant.
It — and every other downtown lot — was packed today. Already, drivers are ignoring arrows and roaring the wrong way through it.
Meanwhile, temperatures rose from yesterday’s record-setting lows, and Westporters shrugged off the stock market’s lows.
Downtown was jammed, with shoppers seeking Black Friday bargains. The holiday season — the longest possible, as Thanksgiving came on the earliest possible date — is off to a strong start.
