The nice thing about streetcars is that cars and streetcars can share the same road. I think closing King St. to car traffic makes sense without really disrupting traffic patterns on the Peninsula. Having a streetcar loop going down King, Broad, around to E. Bay and back up Calhoun could actually work. I'm not holding my breath, though.
Close King St. to cars altogether. From Cannon to Broad. Build streetcar service up and down. Create ample parking near the north end. Driving on King sucks anyway. People can walk or take the streetcar. The entire thing would be open for walking and biking. Bars wouldn't have to keep tabs on their patrons' parking. Streetcars wouldn't travel fast and would sound their bell to get people and bikes out of the way. It works in other cities. Why not Charleston?
Why publish what an ignorant employee at the Circle K says off the cuff about such a sensitive topic? You can do better than that, City Paper.
sesquicentennial: 150 years. Gunilla: built in 1940, only converted to sail in 1999. Check your assumptions at the Google.
