What, Pioneer Park or Eagle Park not green enough for you? There is also bush/mercy park and lets not forget that park that name i can not remember, the one at the end of Castro next to Neto... I'm pretty sure that's still considered a park. Kinda sad to be crying for more green if your not aware of those. There is plenty of Green with-in a short walking distance.

palo altans and now mtn viewers moaning about affordable housing... what we need is *more* affordable housing and all they can do is discriminate against those of us who don't make at least 100k a year. I deserve affordable housing, and I deserve it locally! I work here, so do I have to rent here for the rest of my life?! I want to own my home too, and I need affordable housing to do it!

Still dont get why we need a another market. What is so bad about the asian market? Not sure a large market can survive without more people downtown. There is plenty of parking with the new parking structure.
