The Ultimate Guide to Upper West Side Parking

New York City is the most ticketed city in the US. Last year, $200m worth of parking tickets were issued in Manhattan alone (!) – and Upper West Side represented a fair share of it 🙈

SpotAngels is here to the rescue 🦸‍♀️ This guide will help you:

  1. Understand the street parking rules in Upper West Side
  2. Find the best Upper West Side garage deals

UWS Street Parking Rules

For starters, the entire city is a designated tow-away zone. That means that if you are found in violation of any parking rules, you could be towed. NYC is so serious about towing that the NYPD even has its own fleet of tow trucks. Here’s how to avoid being towed right off the bat:

  1. Make sure your vehicle registration and inspection stickers are up to date, if applicable.
  2. Never, ever double park your vehicle. If there’s already a car parked beside the curb, do not park beside it. Ever.
  3. Do not park within 15 feet of either side of a fire hydrant. Don’t rely on those nifty painted curbs, either. They lie.
  4. After you park, check the SpotAngels app to check the street parking rules and be reminded when you need to move your car

For more information, you can check the UWS parking map below – it has the alternate side parking hours, the meter rates and the garage deals in UWS.
