Parking can be difficult in the Back Bay and some people never get the hang of parallel parking. This guy looks like he just gave up though. Anyone who lives in the Back Bay or any Boston neighborhood can get street parking for the area. Many people make street parking work but I have heard having a resident parking permit likened to having a fishing license. You have the right to look for parking. This is something important to consider when moving to Boston with a car. A parking spot in the Back Bay will run you 200-400 dollars a month depending if it is on the street or garage. So if you are thinking about buying a condo or renting in the Back Bay, or any part of Boston, keep this in mind and above all, make sure you know how to parallel park.
