A Dream Garage for Porsches - One Man's Solution!

Seinfeld Builds Car Garage

.c The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) - As master of his televised domain, Jerry Seinfeld handled all manner of urban headaches - the dearth of parking spaces, the abundance of construction noise.

Now the comedian has found a permanent solution to problem No. 1 while contributing to problem No. 2: He's building a private Manhattan parking garage.

Seinfeld's 20-car Upper West Side garage, which would house his collection of Porsches, first was reported Wednesday in The New York Observer.

Located on West 83rd Street, three blocks from the former ``Seinfeld'' star's apartment, the garage already is two years in the making and is scheduled for completion in June. And some neighbors are less than amused by the heavy drilling this week to complete digging of a basement.

Seismographs have been installed to monitor the effects of the drilling on nearby buildings, and at least two businesses are closing temporarily or limiting their hours to avoid the noise.

``What they do and what I do are fairly incompatible,'' said Jennifer Walker, proprietor of Practice Yoga, which has been closing this week from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. She said a design company managing the site has been reimbursing her business and others when noise forces them to close.

Seinfeld spokeswoman Elizabeth Clark had no comment on the comic's construction.

According to The Observer, the new garage would cost about $1.4 million and would have 20 parking spaces for Seinfeld's decade-old Porsche collection. Most of the cars are in storage near his Santa Monica, Calif., home or in a garage at the Southampton, N.Y., estate he bought in 2000 from singer Billy Joel.

One of the cars in his collection...

This Carrera speedster belongs to Jerry Seinfeld and has only 9,000 original miles (Colorado Grand Vintage Rally 1999). It belonged to Bill Romig who never drove the car in the rain. Bill's widow asked Vic Scirmants to sell the car. The car was advertised for $350,000 in 1993 and for $295,000 in 1996. It was sold -for less- that year to Sam Cabiligio who purchased it for Jerry Seinfeld. Here's a recent picture:
