I just visited my parents' home a few blocks from the home in the article, and having dealt with the resident-parking-only nightmare around there, I can see why people fork over so much.

Subby, please do no gawk at other people's money.

It makes you look poor and that reflects poorly on the rest of us.

Thank you.

I don't brag about the cities I've been to visit. I brag about the national parks.
Any city can have congestion or a night club. Yeah, museums and performing arts are an attraction in the big city. And if you're not in good health, you may want to stay close to a good hospital. But if I'm were I really would like to be, I'm out exploring on the open roads, national parks, and other wild areas.

It might be worth mentioning that these are not street spaces, they're behind the building and part of the real property.  Every building on Comm Ave has a few of them, and a non-owner or -renter who parks in one would be very lucky to ever see their car again.

Parking space can be pretty hard if not damned near impossible to find in some neighborhoods.  I knew a guy who about 10 years ago picked up two parking spaces in Chicago for about $40,000 each.  He then leased them for a nominal fee and two years later sold them for almost double what he paid.

the_g_men: The for the love of god, stay in Providence and away from the "big city"...


You know what's hilarious?  People who brag about how expensive and dangerous their "big city" to the "rubes" who think expensive and dangerous aren't quite cap feathers.

FarkinHostile: I LOATHE Boston for this reason. A good sushi meal for 3 last month came to $350, not including tip. In Providence, the same meal would have been $200 with tip included. I also got a $50 ticket in the mail for using an "Easy Pass only" U-turn that I never saw the sign for.  Fu(king rip off culture in Boston.

Meh, they ain't nothin, nothin!!!

Real men have the city move the farking fire hydrant in front of your town home to accross the street in front of the asshole's town home next door so you can have your own space closer to home.

Yep.  And if you can afford to buy in that area these days...you're probably not blinking at this particular price tag, either.

Do they still have to leave an old toilet out on the street to save it?

I remember in the 1990s my Aunt paid $50,000 for a parking space in Beacon Hill. She sold it years later and made a nice profit. At the time I could not believe anyone would pay that for a parking space, much less treat it as an investment.
