The City provides public parking in lots and garages in the central business districts of all five boroughs. Fees apply for parking.

Garage or Lot Closures

East 149th Street Garage

The East 149th Street Municipal Parking Garage in the Bronx is temporarily closed for safety reasons.

The condition is only affecting part of the garage. Customers may pick up vehicles currently parked inside, but the garage is closed to arriving vehicles until the affected area has been repaired and inspected by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Department of Buildings.

DOT will begin the refund process in May.

Queens Borough Hall Municipal Garage and Parking Field

For safety reasons, DOT has closed the Queens Borough Hall Municipal Parking Garage and Parking Field located at 80-25 126th Street in Kew Gardens. The facility closed on September 24, 2014.

After parking is paid, Muni-Meters will issue a receipt indicating the time purchased to park at that meter location. This receipt may be used to park at another Muni-Meter location elsewhere in the City.

In Pay-N-Display facilities, motorists must display the receipt on their vehicle's dashboard, so that enforcement officers may easily read the parking expiration time through the front window. Motorcycle owners choosing to park at these Muni-Meters are responsible for finding a way to comply with the Pay-N-Display requirement posted on the Muni-Meter.

In Pay-N-Retain facilities, officers retrieve data directly from the machines. Drivers should retain their receipt as proof of payment, as well as a reminder of when to return to their car. If you lose your receipt, you cannot get another copy of it.

You can park in front of parking meters for free on Sundays and on the following major legal holidays:

  • New Year's Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

If you try to pay for parking during these times, your payment will be rejected. The meter will display a "Meter Off, Read Posted Signs" message.

You may not park in an unsecured lot overnight.

If you park after hours in an unsecured lot, you may get a ticket and your vehicle may be at risk of theft.
