"Find your authentic voice." But what does that even mean? You can't make yourself be authentic. That's like telling a teenage girl: "Just go find the man of your dreams!" No matter how badly she may want to, she needs to discover for herself what love is. And that journey includes what it means to get her heart broken, be vulnerable, develop strength, and above all, radically love herself. https://www.freespiritsmusic.com/

Street Parking

Many of the side streets that border Central Park allow for free and legal parking, as long as you read the posted street signs carefully before parking your car. Parking on city streets can be a challenge, though, even for local New Yorkers. Be prepared to allow for extra time in the case that you have to wait for a space to become available.

Metered Parking

Metered parking can be found on the avenues that run north and south on either side of Central Park. Metered parking duration times vary from 1 hour to 12 hours. Always check signs before parking.

Hourly rates for metered parking vary. From 96th to 110th Street, the metered rate is $1.50 per hour. Below 96th Street, the rate is $3.50 per hour. All meters accept coins, some accept credit cards, and many allow you to pre-pay for parking using the NYC Parking Card, which you can purchase online. More info can be found on this New York Department of Transportation page.

Parking Garages

Parking garages can be found on nearly every other street around Central Park. Companies charge by the hour, and rates increase or decrease depending on the location.
