Parking Tips for Murray Hill and Financial District in New York City
Being located in New York City, we, at Parkit Labs, understand how tough it is to find on-street parking spaces in this city. Drivers need to keep an eye on all curbside spots, be aware of the traffic, read three to four parking signs at a glance and quickly slide into tight parking spaces. We have met some of our users on NY Tech Day two weeks ago and found that parking in some districts is even tougher for residents and visitors. As it is the reality of cities nationwide, we have scheduled a weekly blog post about city parking, hoping to help drivers plan ahead and park easily.
Following the kick-off post about San Diego parking tips last week, we will talk about two busy neighborhoods in New York City this week - Murray Hill and Financial District. Parking in Murray Hill and Financial District is hard because of different reasons: Murray Hill/Gramercy is known for massive housing and hospital complexes and the wide selection of restaurants, which have kept this area busy and hard to park during the entire day; The Financial District, which is busy in the daytime and quiet at night because of its historical landmarks and sky scraping business buildings, makes it a challenge to find on-street parking spots for weekday daytime.
