First off, I was born and raised in Greenwich Village, so I'm almost embarrassed to be asking a question about the city here :) But then again, as a true New Yorker, I never had a car, so I never bothered learning anything about parking!
But times have changed. I live in Canada now, and will be returning to the NYC area, with my wife, to house-sit for my brother-in-law in Westchester (unfortunately, too far away to be able to cost-effectively take Metro-North into town). My parents still live in the Village, and I'll want to drive down to see them pretty much every day, for a week. I'll probably get there in the late morning, and then I have to return to Westchester in late afternoon/early evening each day.
What's the best deal in terms of parking? I see there are these new Muni Meters in our area....what's the maximum time limit that I can park in a Muni Meter area on the street? How many hours?
For that matter, what's the maximum time limit at a regular parking meter spot?
And....is there any better (cheaper) way to do this? Would a parking garage make more sense?
I'm willing to park anywhere in Manhattan or downtown Brooklyn, really, since I'll just be hopping the subway from wherever I park, if it's not close enough to the Village to walk.
Thanks for any help!Edited: 14 December 2009, 20:43
