You could choose to live your life inside a yellow cab, but you would be missing all that is going on in the world's liveliest city. Realistically, if you want to get around Manhattan, especially if your travel takes you across to New Jersey, upstate New York or across Long Island, you are going to require your own vehicle and you will need somewhere to park it. Street parking is not an option. D'oh!
Marge knows of several options to save you from parking your vehicle in New York City. One of the worst options is to waste an hour or two of every day of your life trying to master alternate side street parking. Every morning and every night you will drive around the block looking for a spot. This will become your new entertainment and you can cancel your cable package because you will get home just after all your favorite programs have ended. There is good news with this idea though, because after you have parked at least a mile away from your final location each day, at least you will get fit walking home.
Bart, Lisa and Maggie will be checking out the many forums that debate living and working across Manhattan and the inevitable subject always crops up; where is the best place to park?
There is always someone offering some advice that might save you a dollar if you can understand the location and method of reaching an individual car space, but when you try and use their advice, the other 30,000 people that read the same forum are queuing up waiting to take advantage of that one miracle spot.
Despite all the advice that suggests that you move out of the city and live at least two hours drive away from your office so that you can drive in every day and park within 100 yards of a suitable train or bus station, it still doesn't cut it when you need your vehicle to move you quickly and efficiently from Battery Park up to Central Park, across to the Village and then to Chinatown for a satisfying dinner.
It really is quite simple to find suitable and affordable vehicle parking across Manhattan; you just have to know where to look.
The best NYC parking involves simply clicking through the Internet to find companies like Icon Parking Systems where you will have access to over 200 parking facilities across almost all of Manhattan's prestigious neighborhoods, business districts and the high-profile locations.
You can access this information on a laptop, tablet, cell phone or any other computer device. You can download the app for your Android or Apple gadget, find your favorite parking facility and simply choose from the many coupons on offer, to find your best deal. This leaves you free to negotiate the rest of your day and make the most of every spare minute as you work, rest and play.
Where you still insist on looking for free parking, there is every prospect that you will miss your work, your family and all of your meal times. You might also see your vehicle on a tow truck disappearing into the distance because you didn't read the parking signs correctly. D'oh!
