FREE PARKING IN PARKING LOTS AND HUDSON STREET GARAGE ON
DECEMBER 5th, 12th, and 19th
The Village Council has approved free parking, with a 3-hour limit, in all parking lots in the Central Business District and in the Hudson Street Garage, on the Saturdays leading up to Christmas, December 5th, 12th, and 19th. Please be aware that the parking area at the intersection of Broad Street and East Ridgewood Avenue (where the Christmas tree is located) and the parking area on the west side, with the entrance by MacMurphy’s Restaurant, are not considered parking lots, and you must pay to park in these locations. The main parking lot at the train station (with the majority of the parking spaces), going into the parking lot from the traffic light and turning left, is free parking. In addition, if you park on the streets, you must pay to park.
15-MINUTE COMPLIMENTARY PARKING SPACES IN CBD
The Central Business District has several 15-minute complimentary parking spaces on Oak Street, Chestnut Street, North Broad Street, off of East Ridgewood Avenue, and Wilsey Square on the west side, which are available on a daily basis. These parking spaces are limited to 15 minutes only, are free of charge to everyone, and are to be used to do a quick errand or pick up food or visit a business. Please be advised that if you are parked in these spaces longer than 15 minutes, you may receive a parking summons. These spaces have been generously sponsored by several local businesses, which are acknowledged on the 15-minute parking signs. We encourage you to stay longer in the Central Business District by parking in one of our many lots or the Hudson Street parking garage (at $1/hour), and there is also on-street parking available (at $1.25/hour).
