Here Are the Top Ten Locations for Parking Tickets in New York

by

Forget driving — finding parking in New York City is its own special level of hell.

Sometimes you just need to grab your dry cleaning real quick…who cares if you’re in a yellow zone? Maybe you just need to pick up a prescription…no one’s going to mind that much if you double-park, right? By that little orange envelope nestled underneath your windshield wiper, you can tell the City of New York has a thing or two to say about it.

In fact, parking enforcement had 10 million problems with your shitty parking job last year. That’s right — 10 million tickets were given out last year.  

The folks at RentHop have compiled data from NYC Open Data and determined which were the worst neighborhoods in which to park your car from October 1, 2014, to September 30, 2015…and the top ten places in New York you’re likely to find one of those pesky fines waiting for you. So don’t park (illegally) at any of these places — you’ll probably get a ticket.
