GARDEN CITY SOUTH - Business owners in Garden City are fed up with a recently completed parking project they claim drove away customers. The parking lot, located along Nassau Boulevard and owned by the Town of Hempstead, was finally completed after three months of delays. Drivers say finding parking in the area has become increasingly difficult while pedestrians say barriers have pushed them into the street. In a statement released by the town, officials say "the benefits of a newly paved parking lot will outweigh the inconveniences experienced by shoppers and business owners." Officials say storms and utility company delays kept workers from finishing the project.
