Pricey Parking Spot In Brooklyn on the Market for $300,000

BROOKLYN (AP/Hamodia) -

A parking space at a garage in Park Slope is on the market for $300,000, beating the record of the last one there that sold for $280,000.

“That’s more than what my parents paid for their house,” said Julie Hollar, a neighborhood resident.

Julia Kite of the advocacy group Transportation Alternatives says it’s also around the current price of a condo in other parts of Brooklyn.

“They are really becoming … investment opportunities,” Kite said, “and it’s a shame because it robs people who live in Park Slope of a place to keep their car.”

But it’s the new normal since developers tore down a 300-space garage to build new homes.

“This is the Brooklyn we live in today,” Hollar said.
