HT to FT.

For street parking:
Color-coded map of NYC alternate street parking. Many streets near LGA don't have alternate days and are available for parking 7 days a week.

If you're flying out of Terminal A (currently, Marine Air Terminal and Delta shuttle) or Terminal B (Central Terminal), navigate to 94th St and 23rd Ave in Queens. In that area, alternate side parking can be found on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Fridays, all from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. For those of you not familiar with this NYC ritual, that means that you cannot park on that street between those hours on that day. For example, the north side of 24th Avenue (where I parked last week), is a Tuesday alternate side parking street. That means that your car can be ticketed (and even towed) if you're parking on that street between 11:30 am and 1:00 pm on a Tuesday. As long as you park AFTER Tuesday at 1:00 pm, you car can remain there until the following Tuesday, when it must be moved by 11:00 am. The south side of the street is a Monday alternate side day. so if you're leaving on Monday afternoon, you can park your car there until the following Monday at 11:00 am. Other streets in the neighborhood are either Wednesdays or Fridays - just drive around until you find the one you need.

This is a residential area about a 15-minute walk from Terminal A and B, with sidewalk access along the whole route to the terminal. Just walk north along 94th Street, over the bridge and into the airport. Other people on this forum have posted about cars being broken into, but I have never had a problem. This part of Queens is mainly single family homes, very residential and I would think relatively safe. As in any big city, don't leave anything visible inside your car and make sure your car is locked.

If you're flying out of Terminal C (US Air) or Terminal D (Delta), navigate to 23rd Avenue and 101st St. In this neighborhood, you can find alternate side parking streets that are Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, also 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. This neighborhood is also very residential and about a 15-minute walk on sidewalks to Terminal C or D via a bridge that goes over the Grand Central Parkway by the intersection of 101st Street, 23rd Avenue and Ditmars Blvd.


Alternatively, you can park near the Yeshiva and take a cab.

PSA avoid LGA at all costs
fly fairly frequently for work.
until they started construction had LGA down to a science knew exactly where to park by B on 4th level walk across the walkway through the entrance right to escalators through security maybe 5-10 min until gate whole ordeal.
Have been avoiding LGA for last few months, yesterday had no choice due to flight options had to fly.
first mistake was overslept half hour, ok no biggee usually have about a half hour to kill once in airport. HOLY COW lga is a mess. couldnt find the daily lot, very poorly marked. finally figured out have to park by C. found a spot in that lot fairly easily. then time to wait for purple shuttle. after about 10 min one shows up proceeds to leave airport to go to rental car area then absolute gridlock getting past the GCP service road 15 minutes not moving an inch. at this point boarding for my flight had started already. shuttle driver refused to let anyone off the bus. after repeatedly begging he relented. ran the distance to airport took about 10 min to get to terminal thank god for precheck made it to door of gate 7:01 doors closed 7:05. upon landing back in LGA shuttles only come to departures. but this is not marked anywhere after waiting with a group of people for 15 minutes i asked one of the traffic "cops" where to get the shuttle and he said to go upstairs to departures. shuttle came fairly quickly at that point. when i got back to C, didnt realize they eliminated the daily lot prices which until now costed $32/34? (i forget get confused with JFK which one is which) the price for the day is $59 took about 35 minutes from getting into the vehicle until got onto GCP due to fact they have only one lane open....
All in all worst experience ever with any of the 3 majors around NY (jfk, ewr, lga) I do not understand how the MTA plans on handling the millions of travelers who go through LGA every year, this is going to take multiple years until the construction is complete, it is mind numbing to try and describe what i experienced yesterday.
sorry for the rant but hopefully this helps someone....

Exactly!

Oversleeping is not a mistake, it just something unfortunate that happened.

Driving your car into LGA is a HUGE mistake.

I still love LGA!

Using the map in the wiki and google maps, you should be able to find something.

ASP varies per street here so you shouldn't have any issue finding a good spot.

Arrived in LGA yesterday and instead of walking to the car i got on the Purple Route Bus, it took me straight down 23rd Ave to 94th street and was very easy.

I ended up parking on the street. Word of caution - it took me 15 minuets to find out a spot make sure to leave extra time for that.

Indeed, I always do. But the more you do it, the better at it you get. And especially now with the various LGA shuttles due to construction, one can widen the area targeted for parking.

Street Parking works for short term but have to give yourself enough time to Park
Daily Parking there are lots such as Sheraton & Hyatt who have $14 per day with Valet and Shuttle
But when you add it up for a Week it just pays to take a Taxi for $45 each way.

Street parking can often work for a week. One can hop onto the LGA shuttles (or often walk - which might be faster).
