Alternate-side parking suspension lifted

Alternate-side parking is back — at least for some parts of Brooklyn

for The Brooklyn Paper

City officials announced that alternate-side parking regulations are back as of today, but the suspension remains for Brooklyn areas still reeling from Hurricane Sandy’s blow.

The rules will remain suspended indefinitely in “severely storm-damaged areas” in Community Board districts 6, 13, 15, and 18 which include Red Hook, Coney Island, Brighton Beach, Sheepshead Bay, Gerristen Beach, Gravesend, Marine Park, Bergen Beach, and Manhattan Beach, said the city’s Department of Transportation.

“These localized exemptions will facilitate ongoing storm recovery efforts in areas with some of the most extensive damage,” the Department of Transportation spokesman said.
