Parking Remains Tough in Park Slope

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

Parking in Park Slope, Brooklyn is no laughing matter, and there's no sign it's getting any funnier. A study just released by the New York City Department of Transportation finds that a 98 percent occupancy rate of parking spots was virtually unchanged when the city lifted alternate side parking rules for two month. The rules were suspended while the city posted new signs explaining the modified street-cleaning rules.

SOLOMONOW: Anyone who's tried to find a parking space in Park Slope knows that term of the neighborhood "Park Slope" is a misnomer because there is no place to park.

REPORTER: That's Seth Solomonow, a spokesman for the Department of Transportation. He says the revised rules were designed to maintain adequately clean streets in Park Slope... NOT to increase the number of available parking spaces.
