It's the latest buzz around town. The new smartphone app Haystack allows users to notify others when their precious downtown Baltimore parking space is empty, all while making a few bucks in the process. Why waste precious time or space? With Haystack, it will be easy to find a parking spot before you even turn the block. Convenience is an understatement when tapping into the awesome power of a smartphone.
On May 27, 2014, the Haystack launch party at the Four Seasons Hotel in Harbor East drew an estimated 300 potential users. Models with angel wings and zombies welcomed guests to get excited about the new technology that is sure to rattle things up a bit around town.
Haystack CEO and Founder Eric Meyer is confident that the new app is a much needed solution to a major parking issue faced in downtown Baltimore, particularly in Canton and Fells Point. Now, with the advent of Haystack, parking can truly be, as the company motto so appropriately chimes, “for the people, by the people”.
