Alternate Side Parking Suspended Through June 7

(NYC DOT)

May 27, 2020 By Allie Griffin

Alternate side parking is suspended once again during the coronavirus pandemic.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday that alternate side parking rules will be suspended through June 7.

“It brings out a lot of feeling and a lot of emotion in New Yorkers — that is any time that alternate side parking is canceled,” de Blasio said at City Hall. “So, I’m happy to say that alternate side parking is suspended again, and we’ll be through Sunday, June 7th.”

Last week, the rules went back into effect so the Department of Sanitation could clean city streets after going several weeks without street sweeping during the pandemic.
