HT to FT.

***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 am guessing that the cheapest lot for 8 days would be more expensive than a ticket for not moving for ASP. And with ASP there's always a chance of it getting suspended.

Otherwise browse around this map: https://nycdotsigns.net/-73.8896355:40.7730924/parking,21/1458
they don't tow in LGA area? I know in Manhattan some areas tow

I'm traveling Wednesday - Wednesday. Is there a nearby area without asp? If not what's the cheapest lot?
Just realized aso is suspended Thursday and Friday when I'm traveling (Pesach)

Are you joking.

Towing for ASP in NYC only occurs where they wouldn't leave streets unplowed in a snow storm for more than a few hours. This is East Elmhurst, not Manhattan.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

In BP they have towed but not on a Manhattan scale, obviously.

There is always the risk they may.

If the parking around LGA gets crazy then expect neighbors to complain and tow trucks to follow.

I'm flying out of D and asp by Ditmars and 27th Ave (Flushing Bay promenade ) is Thursday & Friday which is suspended then. So hopefully I'll be good to go. According to Google maps satellite imagery, it seems you can walk from there to Terminal D

I don't think there's a proper walkway between the promenade and the airport. Last time I did that (pre LGA construction) it involved a short dirt path.

Um, I work in College Point and there's a packed pound there. Always see NYPD tow trucks bringing cars there. I doubt they're coming from Manhattan.

They’re not being towed for a single ASP violation. Either multiple outstanding tickets, or parking in a way that obstructs traffic (or prevents a law abiding driver access in or out of a legal parking spot). Though I have posted previously a photo of a car being booted rather than towed for parking in a way that obstructs traffic (double parking).
