Here's a bit of complete insanity.
In Brooklyn, you can buy a parking space for $100,000. Yes, that's right. A space. Not even a garage.
But wait! There's more!
Once you buy this tiny space, you still have to pay $220 a month PLUS $37 a month tax.
There is something seriously wrong with real estate in this part of the world. (And with people who insist on owning cars in places where there is no compelling reason to own a car.) Though I have to admit, I feel smug right now about my single-car garage I bought for $25,000 in 2004.
