***The city has now added street cleaning / alternate side parking to the whole area! ***

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.

I tried it pre-construction, there's no proper way to cross over from the Promenade to the terminal. Involved walking a few feet over grass/dirt.

This is where I crossed over. Returning from a different terminal, I took a shuttle bus to Terminal D and just asked the driver to drop me off there.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

so you would quicker recommend parking closer to 102nd and walking from there even though its farther from D?

IDK. Walking through the dirt/grass at night isn't the most pleasant experience, and you could end up with a shuttle driver that won't want to let you off there. It's definitely a much shorter walk to terminal D, though I have walked from 102nd too, and don't mind it (might even be faster than shuttle service).

Probably easier to find parking around 27th Avenue than around 102nd. Plenty of employees park around 102nd.

If I understood the info here correctly, there is no free option on the street for Sun-Thu. Is that correct? If so, what would you recommend for this situation?
ETA: A Friday street would seem to work.
Is there a clear way to walk from 95-96 & Ditmars to terminal B (w/ luggage)? How long is the walk? Thanks!

Please note that the flushing bay promenade from 27th ave and Ditmas to terminal C and D was closed off by security personnel. I was told by a security guard that they are in the process of putting up gates and going forward the walkway will be permanently closed.

IINM that was never an official pedestrian access point to the airport. Might have been a practical path taken by people, but definitely went over dirt path and ends up on an airport road with no real pedestrian sidewalk.

I had a pretty good experience with Bolt Parking via ParkWhiz. Definitely glad I didn't play around with street parking, shlepping luggage on dirt paths, etc.

What's the best way to get from a nearby street parking to terminal C? I ended up taking a uber recently. Wonder if there are other, perhaps cheaper options?
