Most streets in New York City that are subject to street cleaning rules have two sides of the street that cars can alternate between during the posted times. Roosevelt Island only allows parking on one side of Main Street which creates a dilemma. What do you do with your car on street cleaning days?
Well according to the numerous signs posted this evening you can park, temporarily, underneath the Motorgate garage ramp. The poster does not state it but I am guessing once 11:30 am passes all cars must vacate the area under the ramp. I am also guessing Main Street will look like a bad game of musical chairs on Mondays and Thursday after 11:30 am.
In the two years I have lived here I must admit I have never seen or noticed street cleaning / alternate street parking before. When I went into PSD this evening the officers indicated that the postering of the event at this level appears moreso than undertaken in the past.
