Alternate Side Parking to Be Fully Restored

By Matis Glenn


NEW YORK — New York City drivers who were relieved at having to move their cars only once a week will have to resume their pre-pandemic rituals, as starting Tuesday all posted Alternate Side Parking rules will be in effect citywide.

In the early months of the pandemic, ASP was suspended altogether. Starting in late June of 2020, former mayor Bill de Blasio partially restored the program, but only on the latest day on a street’s sign, if that street was scheduled for multiple days. For example, if a street was to be cleaned Mondays and Thursdays, alternate side rules only applied to Thursday.

July 5 will bring that change to an end; streets will be swept on all days posted. The city’s sanitation department calls this “good news” and hails the street cleaning as “environmental justice.”

Some drivers feel that such statements are out of touch, and that ASP is an unnecessary burden.

“All this means is that the city will squeeze even more money from people,” Nesanel told Hamodia. “Calling this ‘good news’ only shows how deeply out of touch the city and mayor are with everyday New Yorkers; they’ve never had to circle a neighborhood for an hour to find parking due to the alternate side regulations.”
