I haven't gotten a ticket for over a year :)
Impressive, but that's not never :)

One might argue that one year in NYC is more impressive then never in CLE.

And I would agree.

I've don't know of a single person from here who's gotten a parking ticket in CLE. 

If you're foolish enough to park overnight on the street (when every single block says "no parking on city street 3-6am") then that's your own fault.  Besides that you can call for an exception if you're really desperate for some reason.

Nobody here even knows how to parallel park as there's no need for it anywhere.  Every store has their own parking lot.

Whereas in NYC I'd like you to find me the person who owns a car and has never received a parking ticket.
I read this post out loud to my apartment currently full of Clevelanders, and they responded in unison "What?!" and proceeded to say all the times they got parking tickets in Cleveland

Must be Cleveland Heightsers ;)  The cops there are vicious...tell them to move to Beachwood already.
Where have they gotten tickets anyway??

I'm going to ask guys in my shul and see if anyone has ever gotten a parking ticket in CLE.  I've never heard of it.

Lol, someone is bored.

The funny thing is that there are zero frum jews who actually live in the city of Cleveland, so those links are moot...

At any rate like I said I'm going to take my own informal poll in shul and see what folks say.

How did I guess...I despise the money-grubbing police there.

The funniest thing is driving from Beachwood, where no drop of snow on the street goes unpunished, down to CH where they don't even bother cleaning their streets...pathetic.

I'd guess property taxes are higher in Beachwood though.

CH Property Tax=3.1%
CH Income Tax=2.5%

Beachwood Property Tax=1.9%
Beachwood Inome Tax=1.5%

In Beachwood if you have extra garbage you call up sanitation and they send a truck out just for you...

Lol

Well, to be fair:
Cleveland Heights Median Home: $102K
Beachwood Median Home: $229K

But then again houses in Beachwood are much nicer and newer than Cleveland Heights and Beachwood is wayyy safer than CH.

Beachwood was smart and has tons of major businesses adding to the tax rolls, whereas CH has nada.

New York City Median Home sale price: $1,562,500

I wonder if that is another reason Dan is allergic to NYC. Not really a deal to buy here.

That's including Manhattan, Brooklyn is significantly lower.

True, but at 500K median home sale price, I wouldn't call Brooklyn a bargain.

It's all about supply and demand. The demand is driven by some other factors which aren't being discussed here as well.

I feel that the prices in the NY area are more about demand than about supply anyway. Manhattan is overinflated because of the lack of supply, but otherwise, being close to NYC is a big selling point for many people (for frum Jews especially).
