In December a wish came true for those who park in areas of Williamsburg’s Southside. After years of advocating, daytime Alternate Side Parking (ASP) rules will come to: Broadway between Driggs and Flushing Avenues, Kent Avenue between S 10th Street and Flushing Avenue, Wallabout Street between Classon and Franklin Avenues, Flushing Avenue between Classon Avenue & Broadway, and a southeast portion of the Broadway Triangle. Prior to this they had to endure overnight ASP.
“Nighttime ASP was a huge burden on the community and a relic of the neighborhood’s industrial past. Families had to choose between waking up in the middle of the night to move their cars or accumulate expensive tickets,” stated NYC Council Member Lincoln Restler.
Another victory for the community was the grace period before The New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) would begin enforcement of the new rules was extended to January 2 from December 23. The worry was that those who had followed the previous rules would not notice that the signs with the ASP times had been updated.
