The major holidays have the greater impact on parking and offer the lowest chance of getting a parking ticket in NYC. The major holidays in NYC are New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
Parking on Major Holidays
The major holiday rule is that NYC allows parking, stopping, standing except on areas with full-time, seven-days per week restrictions such as NO STANDING ANYTIME, or NO PARKING ANYTIME.
Major Holiday & Meters
The City suspends meter regulations on major holidays, and you can park on metered spaces without time limit or payment.
The rule applicable to other holidays suspends the restriction for alternate side of street parking for street cleaning. All other rules remain in effect. The City calendar recognizes a large number of other holidays. They include Martin Luther King, Jr Birthday, Lincoln’s Birthday, President’s Day, Good Friday, Ash Wednesday, Purim, Passover, Eid al-Fitr (Idul-Fitr), Rosh Hoshanah, and All Saints Day.
