From the Daily News:
Sunnyside merchants are urging the city to change parking rules on Queens Blvd. so that it becomes a shopping destination instead of a thoroughfare for out-of-borough drivers.
Officials and business owners are asking the city to eliminate the current no-parking rule between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.
They also want the municipal parking lots under the 7-train tracks to be reduced from 12-hour spots to four-hour spots to discourage commuters from hogging spaces.
The current no-parking rules are in place to facilitate rush-hour traffic, an agency spokeswoman said.
But the restriction kills morning business, merchants said, especially from 39th to 49th Sts. where they are proposing the changes.
