The one time I had a concert in New York City I drove down and parked my car at one of the cheapest garages I could find.

It still cost me $60 dollars for four hours. And I was complaining when it cost my $20 for 5 hours in Boston.

The place has no spots for parking. I can imagine parking spots being sold as real estate. The same thing is happening in Cambridge, MA.

Yea when I drove to Manhattan from Scranton PA on a whim one day, I think I paid roughly 30.00 for about an hour or two myself. I cant see myself living somewhere where like that.

Wow! And I thought it was ridiculous when our condo manager offered us our 2 climate controlled garage spots for $55,000 :eek:

K, you guys are talking about paying twenty or thirty or sixty bucks for a spot. THIS IS A QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS!!!

I live 35 miles from NYC. I last WENT to NYC in 1993. What does THAT tell you ?
It's okay to work there as it pays sky high wages, but then ya gotta live in New Jersey & commute by train. After 5 years you'll be fed up with the commute.
New York City is only for multimillionaires. People out in the midwest do not believe people from NYC as to the cost of everything. Where the rest of the country "speaks" in hundreds or thousands, New Yorkers speak in millions.
A nice dinner out in an upscale earery will cost $175.00 for 2.

A fancy cupcake in a "in" botique bakery can cost $5.00. Have it with a cup of coffee and it's $10.00 + tax + city tax.

I am paying $3.00 a gal. for premium Gulf gas. In NYC it's $4.25 @ Gall.
EXXON & SHELL are more !
After a day in NYC, I come home and want to go apply for welfare and food stamps, and I feel worthless. :crybaby::alchi:

I lived a little north of Sandy, in Rockland County NY, for a year in the early 80s. It was expensive back then after moving there from Ohio. I didn't even work in the city. I was glad to get a job in Michigan and haven't left since.

Those people are nuts. It still pisses me off if I actually have to pay to park somewhere. Damn parking meters.
