Lincoln and Washington’s B-days are legal parking holidays in NYC
You can thank our former presidents for freedom of sleep on the following parking holidays:
- Thursday, February 12, 2015
- Monday, February 16, 2015
Do you think these amazing Presidents knew that alternate side parking rules would be suspended in honor of their birthdays? Nah.
Thank you, Mr. President!
Words of great men can be inspirational
Here are a couple of quotes uttered by Lincoln and Washington many years ago. Are they relevant to life today?
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character give him power.”
It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one”
Universal truths have no born-again date and they’re insights are timeless.
NYC declares a number of days to be legal parking holidays. Here are just a few:
- Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday Jan 16
- Mon Asian Lunar New Year Jan 28,
- Sat Lincoln’s Birthday (Observed) Feb 13,
- Mon Washington’s Birthday (Pres. Day) Feb 20,

- Thurs Good Friday, Apr 14,
- Fri Good Friday (Orthodox) Apr 14,

You may want to remember that on legal parking holidays, ASP Rules are suspended. But, that’s all folks! There are no other benefits.
However, on major legal parking holidays, NYC is much more generous because:
- ASP Rules are suspended
- You don’t have to feed the muni-meters
- You don’t have to obey traffic rules unless they are in effect all days and all times.
Can you name the major legal parking holidays? Here’s a helpful link to the correct answer.
