I would like to see D.C. become the kind of city GGW envisions, but I can't help but think that it is wishful thinking that OP's machinations to reduce parking and, concomitantly, congestion will organically lead to more affordable housing or less congestion. New York City is one of North America's most walkable cities; the rate of car ownership is likely very low; public transit is accessible and efficient . . . And it's one of the most expensive, congested cities on the continent. As Washington becomes more vibrant, it becomes more desirable and more people want to live here--the cost of housing equals what the market will bear.
