You can find out if Alternate Side Parking (ASP) is in effect or suspended on a certain day:

Need something else?

Alternate Side Parking (ASP) regulations allow for street cleaning.

ASP reform signASP rules are posted on signs with a "P" crossed by a broom and indicate the days and times parking isn’t allowed.

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.

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 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 also available on the NYC Today Calendar.

*Indicates a major legal holiday. Stopping, standing, and parking is allowed on major legal holidays except in areas where these rules are in effect seven days a week (for example, “No Standing Anytime”). Parking meters are not in effect on major legal holidays.

When ASP is suspended, you must still follow any other posted parking time limits and rules.

NYC311 cannot give you information on how City parking rules might apply to specific situations. You should follow the rules posted about time limits and whether it is legal or illegal to park in a specific area.

Because NYC Traffic Rules only require one sign for each block, you should check the whole block and read all signs carefully before you park.

Suspension Timing

When ASP is suspended, it applies from midnight the day before until midnight the day of the suspension.

Grace Period

You have a 5-minute grace period for ASP zones. The law gives drivers an extra 5 minutes past the time on the ASP sign. During the grace period, parking tickets cannot be issued.

No Stopping, No Standing, No Parking

In addition to ASP being suspended, on major legal holidays, you can park at a No Stopping, No Standing, or No Parking sign if the rule is not normally in effect 7 days a week (for example, No Standing Anytime). Otherwise, you can’t.

The major legal holidays are:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

Double Parking

It is illegal to double park passenger vehicles at all times, including when street cleaning is occurring, regardless of location, purpose or duration. 

An occupied illegally parked vehicle causes the same safety hazard and congestion as an unoccupied vehicle. While on some streets it may be common practice to double park during street cleaning, double parking is still illegal and you may get a ticket.

Commercial vehicles may double park to make quick pick-ups, deliveries or service calls during posted hours only.

For more details, review NYC Traffic Rules in Chapter 4, Section 4-08, subdivision (f), paragraph (1) of the Rules of the City of New York.

You can contact the police precinct for questions about enforcement. To find a precinct, go to the Police Precincts and PSAs page.

Open Streets

When ASP is in effect on Open Streets, vehicles should leave the street and may return after ASP is over. If barriers are in place, they should be set up in a way that cars can drive around them. While driving in and out of the street, please watch for pedestrians and travel at 5 MPH.

Other Parking Rules and Regulations

Visit the Parking Signs and Rules page to learn about all other parking regulations.

You can contact your local Community Board to request:

  • Changes to an alternate side parking sign or regulation
  • Street cleaning on a new block

Community Boards will conduct a public hearing, then vote on any recommendation to Sanitation regarding alternate side parking regulations.

For a community board directory, or to search by address, go to the Community Boards page.
