Sounds like a pretty big space. I wonder if it is a separate room, or if there are other spaces around it? I think it must be a room all its own.

It could be "duplexed" to accommodate another car at the same time.

How? A little elevator or something? They'd have to be short cars.

Fixed that for Mr. Knackal who seems to thing that NYC doesn't extent beyond the island.

Even with a parking space, who the hell wants to drive in the city?

To me, one of the best things about living in New York has been not needing to own a car (and the associated payments, gas, insurance, maintenance, etc.)

How many 7' tall cars are there? Even the stock hummer is only about 6.6' tall. If you are talking about a luxury car you could easily put in an elevator that would accommodate two cars.

They already do that in Japan in the Ginza District. Not to mention highend golf club memberships.

That private space will probably be purchased by a company for each of its CEO's. No biggie- they just past the cost on to the stock holders or the consumers anyhow.

http://www.bendpak.com/car-lifts/. Here's another, I didnt see a price but it looks more utilitarian (cheaper) than the elevator you linked to.

If youre alreadt spending $1m for a parking space, and you could lift one to store two or more cars in the same space, it's totally worth $100k or whatever these lifts cost.

(of course, I'd just buy the NYC monthly transit card and rent cars occasionally)

Actually, if they are the 1%, it's not a problem for them all. Probably paid for the space with the money they found stuck in between their couch cushions.

Seems paying a Driver to come pick you up whenever you want to go somewhere would have to be cheaper and faster (no parking).

I am betting that it will be purchased by someone who does not live there and they will lease it out for about 6-12 months and then will sell it for a nice profit.

If it were me I'd keep the million in the bank and use the interest to pay for taxis and limos as required. I'd be good at being wealthy if only I could get my foot in the door.

So, you get a space in a Godforsaken section of the East Village. Just to get to a bridge will take a half and hour, and Bloomberg might still ban all cars south of 59th st for security reasons.

Nah. I'll pass.

I know someone who paid $35,000 for a parking spot when she bought her condo in Chicago. Because it's still real estate, she pays property taxes on it, too.

If a multi-millionare or billionare wants to use $100 bills as toilet paper, better off to him or her. I won't hate on people for what could be earned from hard work and intelligence.

Still gotta throw out the question, why? For getting around New York taxi's would rock and your Ferarri is probably safer in your vacation home in the Hamptons.

/If you gotta do practical driving in NY, a five year old 'beater' is such a wiser choice.
