The owner of a luxury condo in Greenwich Village is selling a 12 x 23 foot garage for $1 million. This puts a whole new meaning to having a “garage sale.”
Obviously, the owner of the garage isn’t taxed enough. Whoever has the money to buy the garage needs to be taxed more.
It’s hard to sell a house in most places in New York but NYC real estate continues to rise. They all need to be taxed more.
Daily Mail Online: …The developer of a luxury condo building in New York City’s Greenwich Village has listed a parking spot for $1 million.
The 12-foot-by-23-foot parking space is an extravagant first, even in a city known for sky-high real estate prices.
For just six times the price of the average American home, the owner of the covered slab at 66 East 11th Street can avoid the hassle of finding a spot on the street and park in privacy.
A common driver would have to rack up a $115 illegal parking ticket every day for 24 years before reaching the cost of this luxury garage.
‘It’s for someone who wants complete privacy,’ Dolly Lenz, vice chairwoman Prudential Douglas Elliman, the real estate firm representing the property, explained.
‘You can drive in and not be seen again. It’s for the type of person who finds that attractive. It could be a celebrity or a business person who is camera shy.’..
