Neighborhood Loading Zones

NYC's neighborhood load logo
The growth of e-commerce deliveries on residential streets and for-hire vehicle trips throughout the city have changed the way New Yorker’s use our curbs. As demands on the City’s limited amount of curb space continues to grow, trucks, delivery vehicles, and personal vehicles need safe ways to access the curbs while not blocking traffic, including on bus routes or in bike lanes.

NYC DOT’s Neighborhood Loading Zone (NLZ) program aims to reduce double parking on narrow residential streets by providing space at the curb for activities such as:

  • Package deliveries by commercial vehicles
  • Taxi and car service pick-up and drop-off
  • Active loading and unloading of personal vehicles

Providing dedicated curb space for these activities during daytime and evening hours will help to reduce double parking as well as other unwanted standing behaviors, creating a safer and more efficient environment for all road users. NLZs aim to help reduce conflicts between trucks and cyclists, improve bus travel times, and better serve all of the activities that occur on our city’s streets.

Locations

Neighborhood Loading Zones are in all five boroughs. These curb spaces may be used for the expeditious pick-up and drop-off of passengers and goods.

NLZs are marked with No Parking signs and signage with detailed information about how to use these spaces. Always follow posted parking regulations.

Some locations are listed below, with more zones being installed.
