NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - Finding a legal space in which to park a car in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn requires either time, patience, or money that most of us feel guilty spending.
Just one parking space in a garage at 845 Union Street (at Union St. and 7th Ave.) has been put up for sale via Brown Harris Stevens for $300,000. For that same price, one could buy 16 new Honda Civics, a ride in a stretch limo with a driver for 24 hours a day for 119 days straight, a whole bunch of Uber or taxi rides or pay off a $60 parking ticket every day for nearly 14 years.
The listing says that the garage offers valet pick up and drop off service and hand car washing for an additional charge.
For anyone anywhere else in this country, the concept of buying a parking space for more than a quarter million dollars would likely seem unfathomable. But in this city's distorted parking reality, those who live in the neighborhood found the price tag predictable and instead wondered how much higher it might climb in the future.
Brown Harris Stevens says spaces at the condo garage are rarely available and have become a good investment.
