Black Friday is not a parking ticket holiday in NYC
Black Friday is not a parking ticket holiday in NYC. This bears repeating,
When you shop until you drop on the day after Thanksgiving, you can look forward to bargains galore inside the store. But when you return to your chariot, please don’t get caught with your wallet open by an NYC parking ticket.
Do you know how the phrase originated?
The term Black Friday traditionally had a negative connotation, as one might expect. One of the earliest uses of the phrase in American history was to refer to the collapse of the United States gold market on Sept. 24, 1869. The “Black ___day” phrasing has also traditionally been used to refer to stock market crashes, such as Black Tuesday on Oct. 29, 1929, and Black Monday on Oct. 19. 1987.
Please do not make the Friday after Thanksgiving…Orange Friday. This Friday is the most expensive parking ticket day of the year.
The Warriors are waiting, scanners poised, ready to fire-at-will at your registration sticker. Don’t be a victim.
- Alternate side parking rules are in effect (unless suspended due to inclement weather)
- Feed the meters
- Obey all parking signs
I wish all our wonderful friends a happy and hearty Thanksgiving.
[Can you guess how many parking tickets were issued in The fiscal year 2017?]
