Wonder what the taxes are on two parking spots in Boston?

article says previous owner lost it due to non payment of taxes..

must be pretty steep.

in case anyone misunderstood, i read in another article it is NOT those four spots shown. it is ONLY two spots, one behind the other.

i had read they were amazed the price went so high for a spot where one car had to park behind the other.

you know, i come back to this blog frequently, and this posting/article is (to me) like a bloody and horrific and tragic car crash. It is horrible, yet often a person is drawn to look.

this report of these pricey parking spots is much the same effect on me.
i've seen it before, i've commented, and still i find myself looking and wondering.

i think it is well said by

Are boston officials driving up those prices by not providing enough public parking spaces?
