$30K, $40K, maybe $75K for parking downtown, I get it. I paid a pretty penny for my spot in the south loop.  But when I read what recently happened in The Big Apple, it made me “heart” my little provincial outpost even more.

A recent  Manhattan development at 42 Crosby Street is offering parking at over $6K PER SQUARE FOOT.  That’s for your car, not you.  Although you could probably sleep there.  It’s pretty big – 200SF.

I did the math – I think you could convince Uber Black Cars to give you 24/7 service, forever, for that price.
