Watching the fireworks on the water in Manhattan is fun, but a lot of folks are scared off by the threat of a $115 NYC parking ticket. However, street parking in New York City on July 4th is more assessable than you probably think. Many drivers don't realize that on major national holidays (including July 4th), not only alternate side of the street regulations but parking meters and most other parking rules are suspended. This means that not only can you park at meters for free, but you can basically park anywhere unless street parking is never allowed (i.e., if the sign says "No Parking Anytime" or "No Standing Anytime").
Where should you park your car in Manhattan on the 4th of July?
