RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
And our last word in business today is: Premium Parking.
A parking spot in London is on the market for $465,000. That buys an outdoor location near Buckingham Palace and a 91-year lease.
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
The price tag is more than two spots sold in Boston this summer off and go for $280,000 apiece. But with London's daily parking go fees running at $60, it's actually a deal actually - at only $14 a day.
MONTAGNE: If you park there for 91 years.
GREENE: If. That's a big if.
That's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene.
MONTAGNE: And I'm Renee Montagne.
