NYC Alternate Side Parking (ASP) regulations allow for street cleaning
When ASP is in effect, you can’t park on the side of the street that is being cleaned.
The rules apply for the entire time posted on the sign, even if a street sweeper has passed.
Look up ASP Schedule on Specific Streets
You can look up the ASP rules on street cleaning signs on specific streets by using the Parking Sign Locator map.
ASP rules are suspended on certain legal and religious holidays each year. On Sundays, ASP is not in effect and you don’t have to pay for the parking meters.
ASP rules and sometimes parking meters may be suspended for severe weather or other emergencies. You can sign up to get email notifications of unplanned suspensions.
The latest status is always available on the NYC Today Calendar.
