My guess is season ticket holders can park for $15

price of success

before the Claude-era they were giving out Bruins tickets if you bought a 5 game pack for Providence (and tickets could be lodge glass), they gave tickets to people in line at the Carnival....I'm sure if they sucked parking would be cheap

They win another Cup $32 will look like a bargain (especially with the Celtics looking like they may be ready to return to tough times)
No **** right ! Celtics are already there DKH and if the B's bring home another 34.5 piece of metal this summer , then will we see parking under the ice for $45 - $50 ......I will have to ride my mountain bike in or learn how to use a skateboard

Mr.Jacobs like any high end business man on occasion will have a good deal from the city, state, country for their past and future contributions.

From that 9M in revenue Mr.Jacobs will pay half to the city in taxes.
Not sure how many jobs the parking garage will create - in fact I think they reduced the number of jobs since now its all automated and there will be no cashiers collecting money....more profit that way I guess. Just a guess here but $9M revenue and $1.65M lease subtract say 50% for taxes etc and Mr Jacobs is still clearing over $2.5M. No too shabby.

I say 50% taxes as a gross exaggeration to show he could even make a ton of profit it that was the tax rate. Leasing to JJ has actually cost jobs not created them since a machine now does the collecting of money.

Google? I don't know what that proves, but ok. I'm talking about NEW taxes for the parking garage lease. NOT the taxes he was already paying. Google isn't going to break that down.

It's a lease with machines and no new employees to worry about....as others have pointed out, so that means:

$0 in new real estate taxes.
$0 in new withholding/liability/general employment taxes related to any new employees, as there are none.

He's probably getting taxed on the profits at around $10-20%.....at best. The guy has a sweetheart deal. He wouldn't have signed on the dotted line for any other reason.

Don't plan on shuttle service from the Charlestown 99 on game days

Last night's game...

I've seen posted on the board several times in the past few years that you can go to the 99 in Charlestown before a game, eat, and grab a shuttle right from their parking lot to the Garden. You then get the same free shuttle back to their lot after the game.

I took my family of 5 to the game last night. I figured I'd call ahead an make sure this was still going on before we got stuck last minute. My wife called on the 90 minute drive down and talked to someone at the restaurant. She was told with each paid entree you got free shuttle service. The shuttle leaves twice before the game (at 6:15 and 6:45) and again after the game back to the restaurant- 15 mins after game and 30 mins after.


We got there at 5:25. Decent food and fast service. We were thinking we probably wouldn't have time to catch the 6:15 shuttle. But if we got the food fast, we could possibly still make it. As my 3 kids really like to watch warm ups. So we get the food in less than 15 mins. We're all finished eating at 6:10. The kids are excited to leave for warm ups. We ask our server if there's a specific spot in the parking lot we should wait for the shuttle or if we could just wait inside somewhere since it was pretty cold. Our server is confused and tells us she doesn't think they offer any shuttle service to the game but she'd check with her manager. 5 mins later she come back (6:15). At this point we're thinking we're probably gonna miss the shuttle. The manager explains to us the shuttle no longer leaves from their parking lot. It moved to a spot somewhere else in Charlestown. Apparently people were parking in the Whole Foods parking lot close by and using he shuttle service. So Whole Food got the shuttle moved.


It's still a great affordable option for dinner. As we fed 5 people with drinks and tip for $74. That included a decent margarita and a 23 ounce premium beer. We left fat and full. I think we all would have gotten a hot dog and a soda at the Garden for the same price per person.

We ended up having to do my usual and make a quick drive over to the Nautica Garage and pay $7 for parking. It was a frigid walk. But worth saving $100 on food and parking to get similar service in or around the Garden. Unfortunately we got to the ice right as warm ups ended.

Nautica is great.. 7 bucks you're usually in and out and when i went regularly I don't remember waiting in line to pay the ticket that much. The fact its only gone up 2 bucks in the 5 years i've had tickets is amazing since everything around the garden has gone up. Even the garages before the charlestown bridge use to be like 7 then 10 and I think its like 20-25 now.

Yeah I thought the same. Didn't want to get too pissy with the manager. The food and service was good. We just had to pony up $7…the frigid walk to and from was far worse than the $7!

Only problem I've ever had with Nautica is they keep letting people in once it's full. You end up driving around in circles for 15 minutes until they finally tell you, "Oh yeah, there aren't any spaces left."

What game was it? because sometimes with the bigger games like Habs and some bigger weekend games like philly games they sneak some spaces on the side closest to the office. Now this was a 2-3 years ago. They did it throughout the 2011 cup run as well. I will say they're communication is brutal though. Probabley because the guys that work there don't know much English and seem angry haha.

At any rate, if you don't want to take the T....

Park across the bridge at the Charlestown Navy Yard visitor parking, and then walk under Rutherford Avenue, there's a little tunnel that leads to Paul Revere Park, cross the little park and then walk through the Charles River locks (there are pedestrian bridges across the locks) and you come out right behind the Garden.

Cheap parking and a 5 minute walk.
That's what I usually do... It's actually a pretty neat little walk.

Can't recall. There was one time it happened this season and once last season.

And everyone mentioning the Navy Yard, please stop. Been trying to keep that under wraps so it doesn't get flooded with people.

Can't you find parking on the streets close or around the Garden? After 7pm here in NYC you don't have to pay.. That's what Ive done at Madison Square Garden, it just takes a bit of patience and luck.

You can with a bit of luck in some of the adjacent neighborhoods (Beacon Hill, North End, Charlestown), but not right by the Garden, unless you have an amazing stroke of luck. You have to deal with resident parking restrictions in some of those other neighborhoods too.

I lived in Central Square for a bit a few years back and would actually hoof it over the salt and pepper bridge, through Beacon Hill to the Garden. Not a walk you want to make in this weather, but works well come late March/April, just need to give yourself a few extra minutes.

I used to park at the furthest lot near Gillette, about a 15-20 minute walk from car door to ticket scan.

It wasn't that much cheaper, but you got out of their at least 45 minutes faster, even with the walk back.

I drive to just about every weeknight game that I don't plan on drinking at.

I park about 100 yards away from the Garden and it costs me $3... There hasn't been a single game in 4 years where it has taken more than 5 minutes to get a spot.
