$650K parking space? Here are the apartments and more in Boston you can buy instead

Who needs a $650,000 parking space? Give me a condo.

$650K parking space? Here are the apartments and more in Boston you can buy instead

There is reportedly a parking space for sale in Beacon Hill for $650,000 and if that doesn’t outrage you, then who the hell are you and when are you buying us all lunch?
 
The Brimmer Street Garage is selling a 171-square-foot parking spot for $650,000, NBC reports, with housing not included.
 
“David Bates of Raveis Marketing Group, who works a few blocks away from the garage, said the price tag doesn't shock him. He told NBC affiliate NECN that scarcity is the biggest issue in the area,” according to NBC.
 
We’re sure space is an issue in Boston, but $650,000 sounds a little ridiculous.
 
Here are a list of houses, condos and apartments you can buy with for that same amount or even less:

You can purchase this pretty adorable condo in the Back Bay for $549,000 complete with a patio and new renovations. Parking, however, is not included.

You can also snatch up this delightful one bedroom for only $445,000!

And finally, for a mere $650,000 you can snatch up this pixalated looking apartment in the Back Bay. We're sure a gut renovation can fix all the nasty pixalation though.

If all these things seem a little too extravagant, or maybe you're just not on the market to buy a new home, perhaps you can spend your extra $650,000 on the following:
 

About 309,524 single ride passes on the T.

About 173,333 slices of Boston Cream Pie.

About 38,235 Spalding "Never Flat" footballs. 

About 32,000 overpriced lobster rolls.

About 8,333 single game tickets to Fenway.

About 33 days of Tom Brady's base level $7 million salary for 2015.

You get the point.

Patriots tight end Gronkowski out for season

Patriots tight end Gronkowski out for season

Tight end Rob Gronkowski's season is over after the New England Patriots placed him on injured reserve on Saturday one day after he underwent surgery in Los Angeles to repair a herniated disk in his back. New England (9-2), which currently has the inside track on the No. 1 playoff seed in the AFC, had announced on Thursday that it would wait to receive the results of the surgery before making a final determination on Gronkowski's status. Initial estimates prior to the procedure listed a recovery timetable of two months, leaving open the slight possibility of Gronkowski being available should the Patriots advance to the Super Bowl. Losing Gronkowski robs New England quarterback Tom Brady of his favorite receiving option. The team was unable to put Gronkowski on the injury/designation to return list, having already used that slot on rookie quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who was activated on Wednesday. In his seventh season with the Patriots, Gronkowski set a franchise record with his 69th touchdown against Buffalo on Oct. 30. He registered multiple double-digit touchdown receptions in five of his seven seasons, including a career-best 17 in 2011. A second-round draft pick out of Arizona in 2010, Gronkowski has been plagued by injuries during his career, including back issues in college that raised enough concerns to keep him out of the first round of the NFL Draft. Gronkowski finishes this season with 25 receptions for 540 yards with three touchdowns in eight games. He had one reception through four games before Brady returned from a four-game suspension. In a four-game span beginning in Week 5, Gronkowski had 21 receptions and three touchdowns while going over 100 yards three times. Backup tight end Martellus Bennett has filled in admirably in Gronkowski's absence and as a complement to the perennial Pro Bowler, posting three 100-yard games of his own. However, Bennett currently is dealing with ankle and shoulder injuries. (Editing by Larry Fine)
