Do any of you currently park your car in a garage? If so, on average what do you pay per month and what if any benefits would you say you get from parking in a garage? The autumn chill is in the air and before you know it winter will be upon us and I am a bit tired of having to dig the car out every time there is a snow storm.

If I owned an Audi, I would never leave it parked in the street for long.

We try not to. We currently park in a lot usually that we're being allowed to use at a cheap price because we know the owner personally, but we'd like to store the car inside and are considering in door parking. The main issues are the distances of the indoor garages from our residence and the cost, as we pay next to nothing to park in the lot.

Maybe NYC won't have any major blizzards this winter.

I'm confused. When you say "off-street parking vs parking in a garage" do you mean that you already have off-street parking, like in a driveway or parking lot, and you are thinking of upgrading to a garage?

Henna,
I think the OP probably meant "ON-street parking."

Realize most apartment indoor garages assume no responsibility for your cars safety if they are vandalized or stolen.

they consider it no different in that respect than had you parked on the street.

a few years ago we had a period of vandalism to the cars in the garage.

we wanted building security to stake it out and or install cameras.

the building mgmt. was advised not to it as that could be taken as assuming responsibility for the cars in the garage

I'm curious about this too. I moved up here last year, but with no car. My gf is moving up soon tho and she's bringing her car. So are you able to just park in any building's garage, as long as they have space & you pay whatever cost? You don't have to necessarily live in that building?

I live in Kew Gardens and it totally depends on the building. Where we live now, yes, they rent out spaces to people who don't live in the building as does a building around the corner from us. However, the last place we lived didn't but that was because they had a waiting list for spots. Our current building doesn't.

We pay $200/month but it is totally worth it--no shoveling, no getting the outside mirrors broken off (happened twice in one month), no bird poop, no dings/dents, etc. And no driving around for 15 minutes looking for a spot.

No, we currently park in a lot, but outside where it is exposed to the elements. That's why I said off-street parking.

Our dilemma is any indoor garage would be a slight walk and of course more than what we currently pay since the spot we rent the spot we have from a friend.
