Yea.. Not gunna lie, I was kinda proud of myself for thinking of that one (in addition to getting a garage that is a block away from my apt). LOL

Not sure if you bought the rig from Jeep of Manhattan, but I did and it came with a special one year price but the garage was in Chinatown. I since moved it at the same "cheap" price, but I am currently at a garage where I should be literally paying double. Feel good moment for me.

Re: Parking Garage Wrecked My Truck

it is possible to find garages that let you park and lock, taking the keys with you. I have one but it costs around $100 a month more and is around 10 blocks away.

Re: Parking Garage Wrecked My Truck

I cannot imagine what it is like to have a decent vehicle in NYC.

Wife and I are actively looking at places where we can live without a vehicle in retirement, because let's face it eventually we won't be able to drive but still want to be able to be out and about.. so that means a city..

When I go to NYC, I either park in New Haven and take the train, or take a hotel in Lyndhurst and take the bus

The garage took full responsibility(obviously) and had it restored good as new and fully detailed in 5days...I was actually impressed.

You can definitely live with out a car in Manhattan. Living with one is definitely more expensive but plenty of people have decent vehicles in Manhattan. BMWs, Porsches and Mercedes are very common and you see the occasional exotic such as a Ferrari.

FWIW My current car has not been damaged by parking in the city in the last four years. Its been damaged outside the city though (e.g. door dings, rock chips). I don't valet park and I don't park in the street for more than an hour or so.

That's your parking spot. It's huge. You park and lock now?

Lol, I wish.. It's the weekend so a lot of cars are gone, but normally i share the spot with a new range Rover and ml 63. Right across from me is a new mclaren and two GTR's so to damage those cars would be mad expensive.

As for Park and lock, nope.. They Park it for me, but they know I record everything so they take extra care of my girl... Especially since the other garage I parked at caused 3k in damages.

I've never been there and don't intend to go, but my former law partner grew up in NYC. His parents always bought used cars until they finally moved to the Hamptons. He said the technique he learned for parallel parking was to back up until you hear glass breaking.
