So you think you pay a lot for parking?!

Next time you get ready to complain about how much it costs to park somewhere, remember this.  I spotted this parking price sign in Manhattan recently.
  Bike parking in Manhattan
With tax, that's $15/day or $200/month.  One would need to have a pretty expensive bike to afford more than $2000 per year to park here.  For what I paid for my commuter bike, I could afford to have it stolen three times a year and still pay less.  Whew!

Given that they can probably fit 10 bikes in the space of a single car, that translates to a space rate of $150/day or $2000/month.
