Empty Lot of the Week-- June 25th

Eakins Oval Surface Parking Disaster Area

The Southeastern End of Eakins Oval

                How the fuck does a ROAD become an empty lot? Who thought this would ever be a good idea? This shitbag parking lot has infested Eakins Oval for almost 50 years and is finally in the process of being wiped the fuck out. To be fair, its not like this lot goes totally unused. Though it just parks cars for 99% of the time, its also the jumping off point for charity walks/marathons and serves as the meeting area for tours and shit. Also, the big events on the Parkway often put this ~460 foot long piece of asphalt to good use.

  1. Some recall about ten years ago there was a dude who made himself resemble a parking lot attendant (hat and shirt) and scammed everybody who came along for a $5 'fee' to park in this lot. Made himself a bundle until he got busted.
