"Blumenthal said the auction was a unique opportunity to get more parking places for guests and workers..."

Need more space for those clown cars I guess.

I agree!! The location is right on a train AND bus line. Walking distance to several stores and restaurants. I suppose you don't want to run too far in your Christian Louboutin shoes...Sheesh!!

Ah, you beat me to the punch! I was just about to post this...


Absolutely ridiculous, especially when there are plenty of spaces for sale for <$200k in other Boston neighborhoods...

Wow. Just, wow.
I guess I don't know how to make money. I wonder how much my driveway would sell for?

We saw that on the news this morning and wifey said "for that kind of money, you could have a chauffeur drive you and drop you off every day"
Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight

You could buy all the homes on my street for that amount and still have money left over for window coverings and new paint.

Is this how third world countries feel when they hear about an average person the first world?

We could buy another couple hundred acres, more if it was in a single parcel.

No, thanks. We're still determining how many will fit on 25! :p
