High parking prices greet NCAA tournament fans

CLEVELAND -- March Madness brought crowds from all over the country to downtown Cleveland.

Big basketball games also brought pricey parking. Channel 3 News found at least one lot at Prospect Avenue and East Fourth Street charging $50 Thursday night.

What do you think? Is it a sign of progress for downtown Cleveland or way to pricey? Leave us a comment.

Overwhelmingly, we found most people thought it was just par for the course. "Supply and demand," Frank Bohovitch said. "I'm all for it." But Bohovitch also noted he was not parking in the $50 lot.

Will Duvall came into town to watch Kentucky play and he thinks the price is to be expected. "You wanna be big time... have a big stadium... you gotta have the money to go." He also said it's much more expensive than in other places. "I know I paid more than that to park at New York… to go to Madison Square Gardens about three weeks ago," Duvall told WKYC Channel 3's Hilary Golston.

Parking near Prospect and Ontario was going for $30. Parking near East Ninth Street and Erie Court cost $20.
