Here’s a holiday present from The New York City Department of Transportation and the Department of Sanitation. They have suspended alternate side parking regulations from Monday, December 21 through Saturday, December 26. Parking meters are still in effect except on Christmas Day (12.25.2020).


Alternate Side Parking (ASP) returned on June 29 with the rule that if signs posted 2 or more days for ASP only the last day is in effect. However if there

If the signs show more than one day, only the last day is in effect for now through Labor Day.

was only one day on the sign, that day is still in effect.

Tuesday between 9:30 a.m.–11 a.m. is the street cleaning time for the south side of Conselyea Street, and on Tuesday, July 21, there was a line of a dozen ticketed cars along the street. One couple was flabbergasted at the sight of their ticket; they hadn’t realized the sign was now in effect.

The extent of enforcing the sign with citations before this week is unknown, but several streets reported a slew of ticketed cars this week.

To add confusion or relief or both, the do-I-don’t-I ASP yo-yo will be on the don’t side July 27–August 2 according to this tweet:

For more dates when ASP won’t be in effect: Alternate Side Parking Suspension Calendar.

Amended rules pertain to residential “side streets” and not to commercial areas. Daily sweeping regulations in metered areas will not change, and New York Dept. of Sanitation (DSNY) will continue cleaning streets with posted No Standing, No Stopping, and No Parking regulations as needed.

On days when ASP is in effect, residential streets will not be cleaned more than once a week on each side.Parking meters also remain in effect throughout the City except on Sundays. On Sundays, ASP is not in effect and you don’t have to pay parking meters..

Note that these rules could change again after Labor Day. This web page states, “The City will continue with these amended ASP regulations through Labor Day 2020 and assess cleanliness conditions throughout the summer to decide whether to extend or modify the new rules post-Labor Day.” The City has chosen to continue the amended ASP rules until further notice.

Any New Yorker under isolation who has received a ticket can request a hearing with the Department of Finance and should provide medical documentation or testimony, which will be taken into consideration when their case is reviewed.
