The contradiction belies your underlying prejudice. T o answer your question, the market does not validate parking. There are a number of area residents who do not even own cars. Many will bike or walk, and the market is one block from the Pershing Square Metro stop. Parking in that area typically tops out at $ 6 at a lot, and there is street parking.
