New York City’s alternate side parking rules are suspended this week from Sunday to July 12.

Parking meters remain in effect.

The city may extend the suspension based on street cleanliness and workforce availability, according to the Department of Transportation.

Alternate side parking had resumed last Monday under new rules.

Streets in the five boroughs will be cleaned no more than once a week when alternate side parking is in effect. Some neighborhoods had street cleanings scheduled several times a week.

Under the new regulations, streets will be cleaned on the latest weekday posted on the street’s sign.

"This week was the first week of a brand new approach," Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Thursday, adding that the streets still looked clean even with reduced alternate side parking rules.

Up until last Monday, with the exception of one week in May, alternate side parking in the five boroughs had been suspended since mid-March when the New York PAUSE plan went into effect to slow the spread of COVID-19, forcing most New Yorkers to stay home.

Any New Yorker under isolation who receives an alternate side parking ticket can appeal it to the Department of Finance if they can provide medical documentation or testimony.
