Re: “Is Hyman's a tourist trap, a beloved classic, or, perhaps, an institution?

I stopped ordering sandwiches at Hyman's because they would always wrap the pickle with the fries, making the pickle hot and the fries pickley... No matter how many times I complained, it kept happening.

As a tour guide, I tell people that Charleston has so many great restaurants, that if they ask you to wait in line, they're too busy for your business. If you catch Hyman's with a short wait, fine - it's decent enough, but nothing special. If they want you to wait half an hour (not uncommon), there are many much better places to eat within a short walk.

I'm willing to grant Hyman's "Institutional Status" as a Charleston landmark, but nothing there ever made me feel like I had to go back.

Re: “Broadway hit 'Hamilton' will stop at Greenville's Peace Center

Alexander Hamilton was, ahem, "intimate friends" with Charlestonian John Laurens.

Re: “Charleston as seen in CBS' "Reckless" filming locations

There's also a big scene set at the old Officer's Club at the old Navy Base in N. Chuck.

The scene with the police chief and the bridge in the background is the old Imax building (now Fountain Walk) at Aquarium Wharf (used as the Police Dept. Building throughout the show).

Re: “Peninsula parking pressure points proliferate

Some parking spaces actually *increase* traffic problems. The parking spaces on Meeting St create pinch points, as do they on Calhoun and East Bay above Market. The city should seriously reconsider eliminating some of those spaces, to allow traffic to flow more smoothly and create turning lanes.
