Dear Fellow Motorist:

Whether you’re looking for a parking space in Manhattan or just leaving your car parked in Brooklyn, the 2008 New York City Parking Calendar can be helpful to you, especially with so many new holidays recently added the past few years.

This calendar lists the days of the year that certain parking regulations are suspended throughout the five boroughs. It’s important that you carefully read the posted sign nearest to where you park your car, sometimes more than one.

Adhering to parking regulations will save you the time and money associated with receiving a ticket and/or being towed away. It will also allow the streets to be cleaned and the traffic to be less congested.

I hope you’ll be able to put this calendar to good use. Please remember to drive safely and don’t forget to buckle up.

Your Assemblyman,

Peter J. Abbate, Jr.

Street Cleaning Rules

Most Street Cleaning Rules (SCR/Alternate Side Suspension) signs are clearly marked with the “P” symbol with the broom through it. Some SCR signs are the traditional 3-hour ones (8 a.m. to 11 a.m., etc.), but others can vary considerably. “No Parking” street cleaning rules are suspended in parking meter zones during the street cleaning hours on the holidays when other street cleaning rules are suspended; however, the metered parking itself, as well as all other regulations not suspended on those days, remain in effect.

Major Legal Holiday Rules

On major legal holidays stopping, standing and parking are permitted except in areas where no stopping, no standing and no parking rules are in effect seven days a week (for example: "No Standing Anytime"). However, parking meters will not be in effect on major legal holidays.
