Alternate side parking regulations will be fully restored throughout New York City starting Tuesday.
The city partially suspended alternate side parking in March 2020. Sanitation Commissioner Jessica Tisch announced in April the city's plans to reinstate rules to pre-pandemic frequency beginning July 5.
The policy had allowed drivers to move their vehicles once a week instead of twice during the pandemic.
"The dirty little secret here is that when ASP went to one day a week instead of two, in practice it was like having no cleaning on lots of blocks in the city," Tisch said during the April news conference. "Don't get me wrong — that's not for a lack of trying or care in the Sanitation Department. It is because the policy created a world where too many people saw a once-in-a-while ASP ticket as just the cost of doing business."
According to NYC 311, alternate side parking allows street cleaning. These regulations are posted on signs with a "P" crossed by a broom along with the days and times parking isn't allowed.
Alternate side parking is suspended on Sundays and major holidays.
