PARK Smart NYC

The City’s PARK Smart program was created to free up parking spaces, increase public safety, and reduce double parking, pollution, and congestion.


By using peak and off-peak meter rates, motorists are encouraged to limit their parking time and travel during off-peak hours.


All PARK Smart Muni-meters can be identified by the PARK Smart logo and a yellow zone cap at the top of the meter. PARK Smart meters will accept NYC Parking Cards, credit cards, and quarters.

For the Greenwich Village PARK Smart meter rates are:
• $5.00 per hour ($1.00 for 12 minutes) from 6:00 PM through 10:00 PM
• $3.50 per hour for all other times

For the Park Slope PARK Smart meter rates are:
• $2.00 per hour (50 cents for 15 minutes) from Noon to 7:00 PM 
• $1.00 per hour for all other times      

All other parking regulations in the areas remain the same according to posted time periods and duration.
