The price of parking in Manhattan


I know you’re willing to pay to park in Manhattan, but are you willing to pay to FIND parking in Manhattan?

Erik Feder is betting that you are.

The author of “The Feder Guide to Where to Park Your Car in Manhattan (and Where Not to Park It!),” Feder has introduced a search engine to get information on street and parking garage information in Manhattan. Go to www.WhereToFindParking.com for more information.

For a fee, you can input a cross street and pick the size of the area you want to search, as well as factor in a time of day and date. This will give you a list of the legal street parking regulations and open parking garages based on that time and day. Interactive maps are also available to provide driving directions, and if you need to vent or want to share a particularly sweet parking secret, there is a forum area.

This information is formatted for normal PC screens and handheld devices.

A monthly subscription to receive access on your computer costs $9.95. If you want the information just on your Internet-ready cell phone, Palm Pilot, or Blackberry, it’ll cost you $11.95 a month. And if you want it on both platforms, you’ll pay $13.95 a month.

People can also sign up on a quarterly basis and receive a discount.

Feder also tells me he offers a one-on-one phone consultation service in which he helps people fight their parking tickets. He guarantees the fine will be either thrown out or reduced or he’ll refund the $14.95 consultation fee.
