Greenpoint residents get break in parking rules

The city’s Department of Sanitation is easing alternate side of the street parking regulations Greenpoint to accommodate motorists who are finding a hard time finding parking due to the ongoing reconstruction of Nassau Avenue, Assemblyman Joe Lentol said.

“I am very pleased that the NYC Department of Sanitation will allow relief to our residents. It has been an extreme hardship over the past months to find parking in the midst of the Nassau Avenue Reconstruction.  This will certainly ease some of the problems faced on a daily basis,” Lentol said.

Alternate side regulations, normally in effect for two days a week, will be reduced to one day a week.

Starting Sept. 17, alternate side of the street regulations will be suspended one day a week on the following streets: Apollo St. between Norman Ave. and Driggs Ave.; Hausman St. between Norman Ave. and Dríggs Ave.; Morgan Ave. between Norman Ave and Driggs Ave.; and Sutton St. between Norman Ave and Driggs Ave.

Other streets that will get a break in alternate side rules include: Lorimer St. between Norman Ave and Dríggs Ave.; Leonard St. between Norman Ave. and Driggs Ave.; Eckford St. between Norman Ave. and Driggs Ave.; and McGuiness Blvd. between Norman Ave. and Dríggs Ave.

“I would like to thank the Department of Design and Construction, Community Board 1 and the Department of Sanitation for their hard work in providing this parking relief for those who visit Nassau Avenue,” Lentol concluded.

Manhattan Ave. between Norman Ave. and Driggs Ave. will not be granted a reduction in street cleaning regulations by the Dept. of Sanitation because it is a metered area that is swept six days a week, officials said.

The reconstruction of Nassau Avenue is a $10.8 million project of the city’s Dept. of Design and Construction. The agency is installing new water mains and sewers, catch basins, roadway, curbs, and sidewalks. In addition, new traffic lights will be placed and trees will be planted on the sidewalks. The project is expected to be completed by the end of November, Lentol said.
