Pricey parking spot in Brooklyn for sale for $300,000

They say big-city living is expensive. Here's a case in point.

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

A neighborhood resident, Julie Hollar, says the sky-high parking costs more than her parents paid for their house. Julia Kite of the advocacy group Transportation Alternatives says it's also around the current price of a condo in another part of Brooklyn.

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

Karen Ratner says she paid more than $100,000 for her spot a few years ago. She says there's just "no other parking available."
