Preliminary research says Beach St garage... I work around BMC, almost next to it, and coming into a car, I now need a place to monthly park it. It doesn't need to be covered or valet or inside, but it would be great if it is ubder $200 a month..

Talk to me, what can I do? Or even. How does it work at Quincy Adams T...

You pay daily at the T garages. Where are you coming from? It may make sense to park at Sullivan on the Orange Line and head in from there. ($7 a day for parking plus your T fare)

Are you commuting in on a daily basis, or do you live in town? If by chance you do a reverse commute, many garages downtown offer significantly discounted rates if your car is not there during normal business hours Mon-Fri.

Well. I wonder if there is something like that at Quincy Adams.. I got an e-mail saying a $200 a month spot is available in March? Is that accurate?

I live in Southie.. Parking is an issue.. sometimes the "street" has a few spots, sometimes it doesnt, and when it doesnt, I'm afraid to walk away from my car since a gas station across the street isn't exactly a spot your car is supposed to be for anything more than like 5 minutes.

That said. I drove through a neighborhood on the way to Popeyes today, and there were TONS of spots.. The Popeyes was on Martin Luther King and the streets were hilly and there were playgrounds and there were so many places to park, or so it seemed... around Melnea Cass but I also didn't pay attention to the name of every street...

Your car may not be there when you get back.

For 24/7 parking, you will either have to pay the going rate- $335 a month at Beach St is pretty good, I pay over $400 a month to park in the seaport- or you can park in the street.
Everyone I know who lives or has lived in Southie parks on the street. It can be a huge pain, especially during the winter or street cleaning days when you can only park on one side, but it is much cheaper. You may have to park a few streets over if your street doesn't have enough spots.
You can take a look at craigslist and see if anyone is renting out a driveway spot in the area. I don't know if that would save you much money, though.

This spot almost doesn't seem real...

Ditch the car. Why pay $300+ for parking, plus $x00 for insurance, plus gas, plus title, plus any payment on the car to commute 6 miles a day? Then deal with the nightmare of street parking in Southie. You ever go to Southie at 6pm on a weekday? There will be about 10 double parked cars with the blinkers on waiting for a spot.

I'd buy a bike or a scooter, and take the bus in bad weather. Or uber/bridj/etc. Then get Zipcar or rentals for occasional country excursions.

Now that's the way to go.
