The cost of a metered parking spot is going up throughout New York City—with Brooklyn to be hit with the increase starting Sept. 4
The new rates will see the cost of metered parking spaces in Greenpoint and large chunks of Williamsburg go up form $1:00 per hour to $1.50 per hour.
The DOT in announcing the roll out, which starts in Brooklyn, said that this will be the first time since 2013 that rates are going up.
The hardest hit areas are in lower Manhattan and mid town where passenger rates will increase from $3.50 per hour to $4.50 per hour. The rate increases will take effect in Manhattan starting Oct. 1.

I can live with this in Greenpoint. It is still cheaper than lot or garage parking. Now when are they gonna reduce alternative side days from four to two and paint the 15 feet hydrant lines. Both are money making scams for the city and do nothing for safety or sanitation.
