NEW YORK CITY — Recent changes to New York City's alternate side parking rules will be in place until further notice, city officials said Friday.
Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled the reforms in June, announcing that non-metered side streets with multiple alternate side parking days would be cleaned once per week, meaning New Yorkers would only need to move their vehicles once weekly.
The amended rules pertain to non-metered residential “side streets” and not to commercial areas.
Streets with multiple alternate side parking days are now only cleaned on the last day of the week, as noted on each street’s posted sign.
“We have to change the status quo,” which includes everyday issues in the city, the mayor said back in June, when the reforms first began. “Alternate side parking has been done the same way for a long, long time."
Several neighborhoods had street cleanings scheduled several times a week, which the mayor called a “super hassle.”
