Alternate Side Parking

No Parking Icon

Many streets in New York City have alternate side regulations, which allow for street cleaning. Most alternate side parking signs are clearly marked with signs featuring a "P" crossed by a broom. Some areas have three-hour restrictions (e.g., 8am to 11am) but times vary considerably.

The City suspends alternate side parking rules on the legal and religious holidays listed below, and makes emergency suspensions because of severe weather or other emergencies.

Some metered parking zones have alternate side parking rules. When alternate side parking is suspended for a holiday or other reason, the parking meters remain in effect.

Alternate Side Parking Suspensions

There are multiple ways to find out about alternate side parking suspensions:

Emergency Suspensions

Alternate side regulations may be changed because of inclement weather or emergencies. NYC DOT and the Department of Sanitation carefully consult weather reports before and during snowfalls in order to determine whether suspension is necessary. As weather patterns can change quickly, this decision must sometimes be made late in the day. After a snowfall, alternate side parking regulations will be restored so that plows can begin removing snow and ice from curbside lanes. Plowing helps to clear parking lanes and catch basins, which reduces the chance of melting snow flooding streets, and also helps return street cleaning operations back to normal.

Temporary Suspensions

Alternate side parking regulations may be suspended temporarily in parts of the City in order to post new regulations. When the Department of Sanitation must change street cleaning rules, regulations are suspended temporarily to allow NYC DOT to update signs in the affected area. These suspensions do not affect parking rules other than alternate side parking rules.

When the new signage has been posted, the Department of Sanitation provides a weeklong grace period during which its crews will clean streets according to the newly posted schedule, but will not issue summonses. At the conclusion of the grace period, enforcement of the new rules begins.

Park Slope Alternate Side Parking Suspension Study

During the summer of 2008, NYC DOT suspended ASP in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The study found that the suspension caused minimal impact on traffic and parking conditions in that neighborhood.
