"You would think there was never a recession. In the rest of the U.S., there's a recovery going on," he said.

Colliers International published a list of the most expensive central business districts for parking in October. They studied dozens of commercial areas and found that New York City, Boston and San Francisco topped the list of median rates for monthly unreserved parking spaces. In other words, these are undesignated parking spaces such as parking garages without specific, designated spots.

Here's Colliers list of top 17 U.S. cities by median monthly rates:

1. New York, N.Y. - Midtown: $562

2. New York, N.Y. - Downtown $533

3. Boston, Mass.: $405

4. San Francisco, Calif.: $375

5. Philadelphia, Pa.: $313.25

6. Chicago, Ill.: $289

7. Seattle, Wash.: $285
