Co-op City faced with parking crisis
(07/28/03) CO-OP CITY - Parking in Co-op City is about to get a lot harder. Four parking garages are set to close on July 31, leaving more than 2,000 residents without parking.
The decision to close garages 1, 3, 4 and 8 for repairs comes after three engineering companies determined that the garages were in unstable condition. Engineers say the garages are in danger of collapsing if not fixed.
Another Co-op City garage has already been closed for repairs. The president of Co-op City says this is the biggest crisis Co-op City has ever had. Alternate plans for parking are in the works.
