Hey Broadway Fans!
Nothing beats a fun night out to the theater, but nothing will ruin the night more than trying to find a good parking spot in the theater district. With all the traffic around the city, it can seem impossible to snag a place to park without driving around aimlessly for an hour. We want to make your Broadway experience as flawless as possible, so we’ve made a list of some tips whenever you’re trying to find parking before a show!
In our opinion, it’s always better to take the train whenever possible. The train is a cheaper and more efficient way to get into the city. However, we understand that this is not always the case for everyone. Make sure that if this is the case, you do your research ahead of time to find good places to park and figure out exactly what the hourly rate is! A good place to find this information is at: Nyc.bestparking.com
Not only do they provide detailed information about all the parking garages across the city, as well as rates depending on the day and time, but they also offer coupons that will get you a great discount at many of these garages!
Parking in the theater district itself can get quite expensive, so it’s often better to park further away in quieter spots. Some good places to park will be in the West Village or in the Upper West Side. From there you can either walk or take the 123 or ACE train to the theater district.
Check the signage!
It is required by law that parking garage signs display their rates, which they will do, but often times important information is put in small print that is hard to read as you drive by. Make sure to read all the information before parking in a certain garage, because this is how some places will rip you off.
Places to park under $20
During a normal weekday, you can find cheap parking at the following places if you expect to be there for an average of four hours. Weekends will be a little bit more expensive, so expect to pay a bit more, but often times these places will stay below $30!
