5 Homes You Can Buy Instead Of This $450K NYC Parking Spot

Welp, here it is: a listing for a six-digit parking spot, threatened by many and feared by all. The $450,000 parking spot, unlike apartments of similar expense, does not come with a bathroom. It does not have a kitchen or a window; heck, it isn't even a legal place to sleep. No, it is just a place to put a car at pricey Tribeca condo One York. In honor of this flourishing practice of pricing parking spots above many apartments, we're taking a trip around the Curbediverse to see where you can actually live—kitchen and all—for $450,000.


↑ First up, New York. In the very city where the $450,000 parking spot lives, so too does a $449,000 new one-bedroom condo with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a nearly 400-square-foot deck. It's in Astoria. [StreetEasy]


↑ In Chicago, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom corner condo in South Loop, which is kinda like Chicago's neighborhood equivalent of Battery Park City, is on the market for $449,000.


↑ This one-bedroom isn't quite a stunner, but it's still a place to sleep. That, and it's in San Francisco, which consistently pummels New York City for the title of priciest place to live. Sure, it may be in Outer Sunset, but it's only asking $429,000.


↑ Meanwhile in Philadelphia, just $400,000 will buy an entire three-bedroom townhouse in the gritty-cool neighborhood of Fishtown.


↑ And back again to New York, where $429,000 also buys a one-bedroom apartment in Williamsburg. [StreetEasy]

What's bonkers is that this spot isn't nearly the priciest of the lot that are reportedly coming to market. Steampunk-loving Hudson Square development 15 Renwick will have a few $1 million spots, as will Annabelle Selldorf's Crosby Street project. Oh, mercy.
