Look Up Any Parking Sign in New York City With This Official DOT Website

While it's true that the majority of New Yorker's don't even own cars, the ones of us that do have a tough time parsing the City's complicated parking rules and regulations. Alternate side parking? Street sweeping? No standing? It's so bad that Louie C.K. even did this hilarious sketch on it.

There is a little known tool on the NYC.gov website called Parking Signs and Locator that can help a little. You enter in any borough, any street, and the 2 bounding cross streets, then get presented with the text on all the parking signs for that block. It can help by letting you parse the complicated rules before you get to the street, rather than when you are already 5 minutes late and scrambling for a spot.
