    notice...parking for 63 cars. If I was to pay $30 million for a home, I would expect a place to park my car... ;)

    The future taking shape. I remember in college getting told about how mixed use buildings were the future and here it is.

    Personally I'd rather not read much into that project.... it will just make me crazy jealous.

    As time passes, you will realize the government will never change human nature.

    I live in a mixed-use neighborhood and I *love* it. Only thing I use my car for is getting to work. icon_cry.gif

    If I lived at that kind of address in NYC, a car would not be a high priority. Parking the damned thing is a major expense and public transportation is probably as available there as anywhere. I understand that many who have cars park them away from the center of town (like New Jersey) and take transpo to them as needed. Anybody have direct experience of this?

    That's the fun of New York! New buildings are like penis measuring contests. Everyone has to have the biggest and tallest!

    When you live in a place like that, the expense of a car is relatively minor. No one there is barely scraping by. If you have the kind of job where you need to be someplace quickly on a moment's notice, public transportation doesn't get you everywhere you need to be exactly when you need to be there. Even with traffic, car transport can be faster than trains.

    Also, a car is better when you want to escape the city for a spell. I just drove to Lido Beach today in an hour. A drive upstate to the mountains is under 2 hours. Getting there via train is a headache.

    To marvel, adore, loathe, love, take for granted, exalt oneself on, scapegoat societies issues with, forget about society's issues in, love your view, hate your neighbor with a housewarming party and wine basket, sit back with a coffee and The New York Times, look out the window, do some insider trading, have some gay orgies before his wife comes home, hang himself looking out at Central Park, and never get his security deposit back.

    When I lived in Manhattan, I was @ 81st & Columbus, and parking in my neighborhood was over $600/month. We had to park about 32 blocks away and it was still over $300/month. We only used the car on the weekends.

    Breathtaking. My dad grew up not far from there - Central Park West at 106th.

    While I'm happy here in Philly since I'm retired, I REALLY do miss my wonderful CO-OP on the UWS:

    How much of that is reserved for low income housing?

    I'm disgusted on one hand, but relieved that it's not 2000 McMansions on the other.

    Lemme finish my best seller first. Or win the lottery. Although I want a lower floor.
