Jesus Christ People Ride A Bike (Parking Space Sells For $300K)

Written by Boston Biker on Jun 11

Really? Really! What the hell is wrong with people that they would spend $300,000 (arguably more money than I will ever see in my life) on a f-ing parking space! Buy a bike people!

Today, a buyer paid $300,000 for a private parking space in Boston’s Back Bay section, making it the most expensive parking space in the city’s history, according to Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

Debra Sordillo, the Coldwell sales agent who brokered the deal, said several residents at 48 Commonwealth Ave. engaged in a bidding war for the space, driving the original asking price of $250,000 up to the record-breaking $300,000. The winning bidder did not want to be identified, she said.

Though the price is more than what many people pay for a house, Sordillo said prime parking spaces in a neighborhood just a block from the Public Garden are in short supply.

“There’s only so many parking spaces in the city,” said Sordillo. “And in this part, there’s very few.”

You have to be kidding me…the person who wasted this much money on a place to put their stupid car (by the way that much money would have allowed you to park in any parking garage in town for more than a 40 years).

If they just rode a bike they would never have to worry about parking, would lose some of that fat rich ass, and could have given the $299,000 left over to charity.

EDIT: Because people asked you can park in the Boston Common Parking Garage for more than 30 years! (info here)

EDIT 2: If you use the monthly rate you would be locked in for more than 80 years…seriously these people are idiots…

    I have to wonder how many decades he could have parked in the Common garage for that amount.
