The rule is that there must only be one parking sign per block. The NYC traffic law requires drivers to know the parking signs that cover the block. You could not avoid a violation by claiming not to have seen a sign if the sign were present and visible at the time.

School zone rules are a major source of NYC parking tickets. The rules bar parking when schools are in session or use for school business. Sometimes, the only way to know is to call or go online to find the rule for that school, day, and time of day.
T- Intersection Parking
Streets that connect in the shape of a T are T-intersections. It is a street that ends at a crossing street, and that does not go through. You must turn left or right. At such intersections, the rules permit parking at the corners. Parking at T-intersections is legal, but it must not have marked crosswalks, stop signs, or traffic lights.
