New York's roads are congested, and you have two options: commercial parking facilities; and on-street parking.
Commercial Parking Facilities: There are over 1100 parking facilities in Manhattan, and prices vary wildly between neighboring garages and lots. Visit ParkNSave.com, BestParking.com, ParkWhiz.com or Spothero.com/nyc (or their iOS or Android apps) for a comprehensive database of commercial parking facilities in Manhattan and the discounts available. Motorists can compare rates and print discount coupons. BestParking also includes on-street parking regulations. Additional resources for on-street parking can be found below.
If you want to save money while parking at the best locations in NYC, you can get coupons and savings from sites like www.parknyc.com and www.parknsave.com If you are looking specifically to park in a commercial parking facility in NYC, visit their sites to get the best deals and benefit from significant savings.
SmoothParking.com, and its apps for iOS and Android, have a map of the parking regulations, including soon to be legal spots. It has the most accurate, and up to date information on current parking regulations. One of the best features of the app is that it can save your spot, let you know the parking regulations on your saved spot and send you a notification before the legal parking time is up.
Warning: Be very careful to follow the NYC Department of Transportation posted regulations and meter instructions. The city will ticket and tow vehicles like no other in the world!
Well there you have it. The best of the NYC parking web sites. Also, don't forget to check the NYC.gov calendar for the parking regulation suspensions. On major holidays and major weather events the parking rules can be temporarily suspended and you can rest easy.
Good luck and do not forget the quarters for the meter and stay away from those hydrants! You have to park 15 feet from a hydrant or you will get a $115 ticket.
